How well do I have to be able to ski to join the Talon Crew?

To quote Kerry Donovan, Talon Crew Organizer:

Talon Crew skiers must be absolutely confident and capable on a steep and icy slope. It is NOT normal skiing. The racecourse is like a vertical ice skating rink. If you know you can ski out onto that vertical ice skating rink and throw an edge, then you’re ready to ski across The Brink and work on the Crew.

Is there a place I can store my skis on the hill?

Yes, Talon Crew (with valid ID) are allowed to check their skis for free in the Overnight Ski Storage during Race Week at the base of the Centennial Lift. The storage are is on the right-hand side of the lift, the side facing the Beaver Creek Club. Please remember that those working there are also volunteers and tip them generously.

I don’t see my question here, can I ask somebody?

Yes, please contact us. We’d love to hear from you.
