New at Beaver Creek Resort
New Trail Added – Kestrel, part of the Women's 2015 Downhill Course.
During the Summer of 2012, the Beaver Creek team cut a new trail in cooperation with the Forest Service and the FIS creating a new women’s speed course for the 2015 FIS Alpine World Championships. The trail pitch was graded to offer expert skiers some new challenging terrain which is open to expert skiers and snowboarders this season. The women will have their first races on the new track December 2013.
Beaver Creek guests can see how they stack up against World Champion Ski Racer Lindsey Vonn and share their results with family and friends. Beaver Creek is known for its world class ski racing, and what better way to be a part of it than to see how you compare to everyone from Lindsey Vonn to your friends and family. Vail Resorts announced the third generation of its wildly popular ski and snowboard application, EpicMix, providing skiers a new way to experience ski racing. Learn more at EpicMix.com.
