Birds of Prey World Cup Downhill

Race start is just over the horizon of the top back peak

The other day Beaver Creek hosted a round of the Men's World Cup of Downhill Skiing. The races were held on a western slope of the resort with a vertical run of  around 3,000 vertical ft. These dudes really know how to boogie, getting down the mountain in about a minute and a half going over 120km/h. This was the real deal with international TV coverage, commentary and the best downhill skiers from around the world. We saw a couple of heavey spills and but most made it down in one piece.
Here comes the winner
