1000 days to Vail/Beaver Creek 2015
With Wednesday, May 9, marking 1000 days to go until the world returns to Vail and Beaver Creek for the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, 3rd-15th February, the event's Organizing Committee has revealed their directive: "Dream It. Live It. Share It".
"It" refers to the 2015 World Championships and Vail and Beaver Creek Organizers want the world to know that this will be much more than just two weeks of ski racing. These Championships will be a many-faceted celebration of not only skiing, but an event and a feeling that can and will mean a world of different things on different levels to everyone that is touched by "It".
"If you stop to think about it," explained Ceil Folz, president of the Vail Valley Foundation and the 2015 Organizing Committee, "Dream, Live and Share can take on a myriad of different meanings when it comes to the World Championships. A young skier in Nepal can dream about having the chance to race in the Championships, just as Lindsey Vonn can dream about winning a medal here."
Dream It. Live It. Share It.
"At the other end of the spectrum," Folz continued, "a child that has never had the opportunity to experience skiing or snowboarding can also have that dream come true through the Championships."
"We intend for 2015 to be a very accessible World Championships," added Chris Jarnot, Senior Vice President and CEO of Vail and Beaver Creek, and chairman of the 2015 Marketing Committee. "The public and the athletes will have a great many opportunities to live the Championships while they are here, but we also want skiers from around the world, the U.S. and Colorado to not only come to the event, but to also participate and enjoy it."
"We will also all share this event in many different ways," concluded Jarnot. "That may mean sharing the excitement and spirit with others or sharing it via social media vehicles with people that are not in Vail and Beaver Creek. There are countless ways that the three words of the tagline can apply and have meaning to each and every individual."
So, as the clock continues its relentless 1000-day march toward February 3, 2015..."Let the "Dream" begin.
