The Talon crew is an intensely dedicated group of volunteers who strive to produce the best Men’s FIS Alpine Ski Race in the world. Partnering with the Vail Valley Foundation and Vail Resorts, every year the Talon Crew finds itself on the icy slopes of the Birds of Prey shoveling, slipping, and building fence. The Talon Crew is already preparing for 2015 World Championships when we will strive to present the best prepared piste that any World Alpine Ski Championship has seen.
