Beaver Creek gains World Cup events
November 30, 2011
BEAVER CREEK, Colo. – The Birds of Prey coordinators say the men’s giant slalom and slalom, along with the women’s super G, will be held at Beaver Creek next week due to a lack of snow in Val d’Isere, France.
John Dakin, the chief of press for the event in Beaver Creek, announced the change Wednesday.
Four races were originally scheduled for Val d’Isere on Dec. 10 and 11.
Instead, the men’s GS will be held on the Birds of Prey course Tuesday, the women’s super G on Wednesday and the men’s slalom on Thursday. The final race, a women’s super-combined, has been postponed.
