Vail's Golden Peak to host 2015 team event
Historic Golden Peak in downtown Vail will host the nations' team event during the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 2015 at Vail-Beaver Creek (USA). The thrilling head-to-head competition was confirmed to take place in Vail following the technical inspection by FIS Race Directors Günter Hujara and Helmuth Schmalzl who visited a still snowy Vail last week.
"Golden Peak will be a great venue for the nations team event during the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships," said Hujara. "The spectators will be able to see the entire course from the finish and it will be a fantastic promotion for the sport."
While all the other ten title competitions will take place at nearby Beaver Creek, Golden Peak will also be the site of the men's slalom and giant slalom qualification races, as well as the World Championships Opening Ceremonies and nightly entertainment.
"We are pleased to finalize our competition venues with this decision," said Ceil Folz, President of the Vail Valley Foundation and the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships Organizing Committee. "Vail has been a major force in ski racing since opening its doors to the world and it is only fitting that they continue that role in 2015."
Scheduled from February 3rd-15th 2015, the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships are expected to showcase athletes from over 70 nations to an international television audience approaching 750 million people. Vail hosted the 1989 World Championships and in 1999, the last time the marquee event was in North America, and was part of the inaugural FIS Ski World Cup season in 1967.
