Talons Challenge

February 20, 2016

Avondale Lane, Avon, CO

Beaver Creek's most advanced runs from the Birds of Prey across Grouse Mountain to Larkspur Bowl make up the Talons terrain, which is certain to test even the most experienced skiers and riders. Beaver Creek has established "The Talons Challenge" as the standard for taming the terrain. This program is exclusively offered to students of the Beaver Creek Ski and Snowboard Schools or during our one-day public Talons Challenge event on Saturday, February 20th, 2016. 

For the 13th year, Talons Challenge will be showcasing the best steeps Beaver Creek has to offer. Over 26,000 vertical feet of Black Diamond and Double Black Diamond runs await on Beaver Creek’s legendary World Cup Birds of Prey downhill course, Grouse Mountain, and in Larkspur Bowl. Conquer all 14 runs and earn your spot on the Talon's Wall-of-Fame.

The event is limited to the first 1,500 registrants. Last year's registration sold out, so register early!

Included in your registration fee (Advanced Online - $35 / Event Day via Cash or Credit - $40) is access to the Talons Challenge, lanyard and credential for tracking your runs, special 12th Edition Talons Challenge swag, food and drink, and a chance to win amazing prizes at the après party raffle at the all-new Talons Restaurant!
