Birds of Prey Returns this Weekend

Dec 3, 2015 // Lacey Baccich

Slifer Smith & Frampton is proud to be an official sponsor of the Birds of Prey downhill competition this weekend in Beaver Creek. Always a town favorite, the Birds of Prey World Cup is the only World Cup stop in the United States and brings athletes from all over the globe. The Birds of Prey downhill course is regarded as one of the most difficult downhill courses in the world and features a vertical drop of 757 meters. The Birds of Prey contains an average gradient of 27 percent, increasing to 45 percent in the middle of the course and again in the final third of the course.
