Stay at the Minturn Inn for Birds of Prey this weekend!

Birds of Prey Is The Place to Be Around Vail Valley This Week

By Caitlin Row

With Thanksgiving in the rear-view mirror, we are heading full force into Vail and Beaver Creek’s holiday season!

This weekend ushers in the first few days of December, and that means Birds of Prey ski racing is returning to Beaver Creek Resort. At the time of this writing, Vail Daily reported that downhill training was being delayed a day but course conditions were “ideal.” Though weather has been pretty warm and sunny as of late, Birds of Prey races are on track to happen this year. That’s good news because it was cancelled last year due to temperatures being too warm. Fingers crossed!

Weather predictions for this week keep changing so check back closer to the weekend. Temperatures are hovering in the high 40s and low 50s through the weekend. At the time of this writing, snow showers are on the books for the evening of Sunday, December 3, and for Monday, December 4.

With that in mind, here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week.
