World Cup Men's Giant Slalom
**DELAYED 1st RUN START: NEW TIME 10:15am**
Giant Slalom is the event characterized as being the discipline requiring the most technical skill as skiers race down the mountain through a faster and more open course than in Slalom, which requires the execution of many short, quick turns.
The number of gates in a Giant Slalom course is determined by the vertical drop of the hill. The event is staged in two runs, with the total time of each run added together to determine the final finish order.
Run 1 - 10:15am
Run 2 - 12:45pm

Think Green... Take Trail 2015!
Want to make an environmental statement, let alone get a great workout, on your way to and from the 2013 FIS Beaver Creek World Cup Weeks races? Then Think Green…Take Trail 2015. The mild 1.6 mile walk along the Beaver Lake Trail will begin at Centennial Station in Beaver Creek Village and end at the Red Tail Finish Stadium, with walking and Dial-A-Ride shuttle options to the trailhead. Please remember to bring your hiking poles and snowshoes, or wear winter shoes/boots. As a special bonus, Yaktrax will be providing a limited supply of demos during the Audi Birds of Prey Men’s World Cup so demo a pair and then purchase your own at the Yaktrax tent for a discounted price. Please allow 45 minutes to reach the stadium to ensure you don’t miss any of the action. After the races, ride the bus or walk back down to Beaver Creek Village to continue the party. Think Green…Take Trail 2015.
