All eyes on Saturday’s race, weather

Beaver Creek, Colo., Dec. 1, 6:55 p.m. MST — The ski racing world has turned its attention to Beaver Creek in hopes that downhill racing for the season will begin December 2, at the Xfinity Birds of Prey Audi FIS Ski World Cup.

An enjoyable bib draw in Beaver Creek Village, which included numbered chocolate chip cookies awarded to each bib selector, brought smiles to the crowd as light snow continued to fall in the Rockies. Fireworks followed, to the delight of the fans in attendance.

Weather will be a consideration in Saturday’s races as organizers hope to be able to host the second of two downhills scheduled for the iconic Birds of Prey course.

A smorgasbord of activity is planned for Beaver Creek Village throughout the day, including the ever-popular Beers of Prey event.

Friday race canceled
Due to heavy snowfall, together with low visibility, and despite tremendous efforts from the course crew, the Jury together with the Organizing Committee decided to cancel Friday’s first men’s downhill.
