The tradition of alpine ski racing has been interwoven throughout Vail and Beaver Creek’s history since Vail Mountain opened to the world in 1962. Founded by a ski racer, Vail hosted its first racing event, a U.S. Ski Team training camp, one week after opening.
Since 1983, the Vail Valley has played host to numerous annual World Cup races, including the 1994 and 1997 World Cup Finals. This number has been increased by the ability to hold competitions when other resorts have been forced to cancel their races as the Vail Valley has traditionally come to the aid of the FIS by picking up races from Aspen, Whistler, Park City and Val d’Isere, France.
The 1989 and 1999 World Alpine Ski Championships firmly established the Vail Valley as "the ski racing capital of North America", generating worldwide awareness for Vail and Beaver Creek. As a result of the 1989 Championships, Vail Associates’ international skier visits jumped from 3-4% to 12% for the winter of 1989-90, while the 1999 Championships generated the largest crowd in U.S. ski racing history and the coming out party for one of the world’s premier downhill courses, paving the way for Vail and Beaver Creek’s successful bid to host the 2015 World Championships.
