Beaver Creek will host 3 World Cup races next week
BEAVER CREEK, Colo.—The Birds of Prey coordinators say the men's giant slalom and slalom, along with the women's super-G, will be held at Beaver Creek next week due to a lack of snow in Val d'Isere, France.
John Dakin, the chief of press for the event in Beaver Creek, announced the change Wednesday.
Four races were originally scheduled for Val d'Isere on Dec. 10 and 11.
Instead, the men's GS will be held on the Birds of Prey course Tuesday, the women's super-G on Wednesday and the men's slalom on Thursday. The final race, a women's super-combined, has been postponed.

VAL D'ISERE, France (AP) -- Women's World Cup ski races in supercombined and super-G at Val d'Isere have been canceled because of a lack of snowfall.
An official at Val d'Isere says the International Ski Federation canceled the races scheduled for Dec. 10 and 11 after visiting the slopes on Wednesday.
The federation has not decided whether the men's giant slalom and slalom will go ahead on those days. Both races could be canceled if there is not enough snowfall.
