Preparing A World-Class Mountain: 2015 Behind the Scenes Part II
A new video takes you behind the scenes to look at the construction of the 2015 Downhill Course for the World Alpine Ski Racing Championships. This video showcases the work done this past summer in preparation for both 2013 and 2015.
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.
