Over the summer, Beaver Creek

  • installed 16000′ of fiber optics and 5 miles of conduit on the hill for a total of 500 fibers on hill. ¬†This will give the ability to broadcast in HD.
  • installed power and load centers at both the men’s and the women’s starts.
  • installed 145 A-net towers on Women’s Course. ¬†Between the two courses, there are now 7.1 miles of A-net and 17.3 miles of B-net.
