Mother Nature is dumping lots of snow in the Vail Valley, as over seven inches fell on the Birds of Prey race course Tuesday night in Beaver Creek.  Because of the new snow, FIS organizers moved the downhill training run from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  so that volunteers and officials could remove the deep snow.  The Audi Birds of Prey will begin this Friday with the Super Combined event at 11:00 a.m., and continues with the Men’s Downhill on Saturday at 11:00 a.m.  All races are free and open to the public.
