Can You Complete the Talons Challenge Weekend in Beaver Creek?

Put your skills to the test at this downhill challenge at Beaver Creek.

The 2016 Talons Challenge is an exclusive opportunity for skiers and riders from all over to test their skill at conquering the park's unique terrain. The event gets the name "Talons" from the collection of runs themselves – Birds of Prey, Grouse Mountain, and Larkspur Bowl. This is the ultimate playground of Beaver Creek Ski and Snowboard Schools.

Talons Challenge Weekend in Beaver Creek2016 Talons Challenge
Saturday, February 20th
Beaver Creek, Colorado 

The 13th Talons Challenge Weekend in Beaver Creek is the one day this year when the public gets to try their hand at tackling the famous 14-run challenge. The course is sure to keep all athletes on their toes with black diamond and double black diamond runs that drop over 26,000 vertical feet. There are 14 runs in all and anyone who completes them all will be put on the Talons Wall of Fame. Anyone who plans to take on the mountain should bring their A-game because the mountain yields to no one.

The lifts open at 8:30am and participants can take on the mountain at their own pace. After each run, a participant must have it punched off on their credential by a staff member and then get back on the lift for the next run. They'll probably want to be on the slopes all day, but after 12pm athletes may enjoy complimentary food and drink, commemorative gifts, and more fun at the Talons Après Party from 12-4pm.

Ski Beaver Creek During the Day, Stay with Us Overnight

Downhill skiing in Beaver Creek draws thousands of visitors and adventure seekers to the area every year.
