The past summer was another extremely busy one on Beaver Creek Mountain with Phase II of the ladies’ speed course construction getting underway, seemingly as soon as the last snow melted from the racecourse. Crews also removed old television cable off the men’s Birds of Prey course, in addition to finishing electrical, telecommunications, fiber connections and safety installation on the ladies’ track.
The new Talons Restaurant is in the final stages of construction, with a scheduled delivery date of November 5. In addition to serving as a great enhancement for skiers and snowboarders in the Birds of Prey, Grouse Mountain and Larkspur areas of Beaver Creek Mountain, Talons will also serve as home to the print, broadcast and photo media during annual World Cup and the 2015 World Championships competitions.
Finally, seven snowmaking compressors will be upgraded to allow for more production, while also realizing significant energy savings over the existing system.
