Embraced by Beaver Creek Loves Kids, the weekend will bring family activities, racing and Olympian Caroline Lalive out to the slopes.
Caroline will host morning ski clinics with the Beaver Creek Race Team on Saturday and Sunday morning, see event schedule for more info!
As for the afternoon races, families will be encouraged to race as teams of two or three, and larger families can opt to race as two teams with scoring based on a team point average–the two highest scoring members contributing to the team score. Awards will be presented after Saturday's race and Sunday's race to the top Family teams and the top Friends Teams, with the FASTEST Family Team walking away with an HD Flip Video Camera!
