Birds of Prey – Spectator access to Red Tail Camp

Daily Staff Report
Beaver Creek CO, Colorado

BEAVER CREEK, Colorado”While the world’s best downhillers may have their hands full navigating the Birds of Prey downhill course at Beaver Creek, finding the best seat in the house will be a piece of cake for spectators, with a pair of access options in place for the December 4-7 race days.

For those race fans on foot, special free downhill buses will depart from the covered bridge bus turn-around in Beaver Creek Village every five minutes on race days for the ten-minute ride to the Red Tail Finish Stadium. Buses will also run for Downhill training.

More athletically inclined spectators can access the Red Tail Stadium on snowshoes via the Wagon Road.Trail. The Wagon Road can be reached by crossing the skier bridge from the Nordic Center and turning right, past Rendezvous Cabin and the Beaver Creek Service Center.

Snowshoers will then pick up Lost Buck, following this trail past the water towers to the Wagon Road. Snowshoeing will not be permitted on Dally, which will serve as the bus route.

Spectator parking will be located in the lower Beaver Creek lots, with free bus transportation provided to the Covered Bridge. From there, spectators can catch the free buses to the finish area or walk through Beaver Creek Village to the Centennial Express lift.

The Red Tail Finish Stadium will contain bleacher seating and a large screen television for top-to-bottom race coverage.
