The final dress rehearsal for the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships will take place December 5-7 of 2014 as the world’s fastest men once again descend on Beaver Creek for the annual Audi Birds of Prey Men’s World Cup Weekend.
Slated for Downhill, Super-G and Giant Slalom competitions, Birds of Prey will set the stage for not only the World Championships, but the entire 2014-15 World Cup campaign.
Olympic champion Ted Ligety looks to make it five consecutive Beaver Creek Giant Slalom victories, while teammates and Sochi Olympic medalists Bode Miller and Andrew Weibrecht, along with the world’s best skiers, seek to tame Birds of Prey and become early favorites for World Championships hardware.
The Birds of Prey Downhill will get things started on December 5, with Super-G on tap for December 6 and Giant Slalom bringing down the curtain on December 7.
