Birds of Prey Viewing and Spectating Information

All racing events are free and open to the public.  The Birds of Prey racecourse has a mid-mountain finish area and, depending on snow conditions, can be accessed by shuttle bus service, with snowshoes, skis or snowboards.  Concessions and restrooms are available at the Red Tail Finish Stadium.

Parking & Getting to the Red Tail Finish Stadium 

Spectator parking is available in the complimentary parking lots (beginning with the Bear Lot) located at the base of Beaver Creek Resort.  Regularly scheduled free shuttles will bring spectators to the Covered Bridge stop where special race shuttles will take you to the Red Tail Finish Stadium.  Race shuttles run every 5-10 minutes from 5:30am to the completion of that day's race.  Skis and snowboards are not permitted on the race shuttles.

From the shuttle drop location, there is a 5-10 minute hike to the Red Tail Finish Stadium.  ADA access to the venue is available on request.  Please allow one hour of travel time from the base of Beaver Creek Resort to the Red Tail Stadium in order to not miss any of the action!
