Don’t be late for Day 8 – Monday, Feb. 9

Another monumental day is expected for spectators at Red Tail Stadium in Beaver Creek for Day 8 of the Alpine World Ski Championships. Temperatures in the low 30°s may greet you at 8 a.m. rising to a projected high of 49° F.  Please don’t forget your sunglasses, lip balm and sunscreen – leave the “beet-red” look to fire trucks. Be sure to keep yourself well hydrated throughout the day.

Though ample parking is available (Bear, Elk and Rodeo lots), it is suggested to arrive early to ensure your safe and timely journey to the stadium. Arrive later than planned? Not a problem - take advantage of free shuttles and parking in Vail.

The Ladies’ Alpine Combined dual race starts at 10 a.m. with the Downhill Run and followed up at 2:15 p.m. with the Slalom Run. Lindsey Vonn returns with a repeat podium appearance in her sights. Others to watch include Anna Fenninger (Austria) and Tina Maze (Slovenia).

New to Alpine Combined? This race consists of one run of downhill and two slalom runs. The fastest aggregate time determines the winner.
 
Having passed the halfway mark of the Alpine World Ski Championships, the success of this event would not be possible without you. We applaud your efforts to embrace the public safety outreach message of “See Something, Say Something” which encourages the reporting of suspicious activity to proper local law enforcement authorities.
