Audi Birds of Prey Men’s World Cup Races
As the only men’s World Cup stop in the United States, the Birds of Prey has evolved into one of the world’s premier ski events. Beaver Creek Mountain is home to the formidable Birds of Prey race course, challenging an international roster of top athletes for one week of racing featuring Men’s Alpine Ski Racing as part of the EverBank America’s Winter Opening, Where It Begins.
The Birds of Prey downhill course is regarded as one of the most difficult downhill courses in the world and features a vertical drop of 757 meters. The Birds of Prey contains an average gradient of 27 percent, increasing to 45 percent in the middle of the course and again in the final third of the course.
The second annual EverBank America’s Winter Opening – ‘Where It Begins’ celebrates the arrival of winter and elevates the experience surrounding the Audi Birds of Prey World Cup race week. In 2016 it is set to include live concerts and entertainment, alpine ski racing on Beaver Creek Mountain, “Birds of Prey Way” festivities in Beaver Creek Village, the annual Black Diamond Ball and much more.
