World Ski Championships – LIV SIR Beaver Creek Office Hosts Daily Events

Today marks the halfway point of the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, which represent the largest and most impressive collection of ski racing talent in the world, second only to the Olympics. This year, as the 2015 Championships unfold in the Vail Valley, Beaver Creek plays host to the lion’s share of the racing action, where top ski racers from 70 countries continue to compete in five Alpine disciplines: Downhill, Super G, Super Combined, Giant Slalom and Slalom.

The LIV Sotheby’s International Realty Beaver Creek Lodge office location sits at the epicenter of it all, and will continue to host the public for daily complimentary events, including morning coffee and nibbles and Après Ski.

“We hope that our guests experience the hospitality and friendliness of our brokers and staff during this event while we introduce them to the Sotheby’s International Realty brand and our Vail Valley offices,” said Dan L. Fitchett Jr., managing broker, LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, Vail Valley.

Since the Championships inception, February 2, spectators and athletes attending the 2015 FIS Ski Championships, have used the brokerage’s prime location at 26 Avondale Lane, in the Beaver Creek Lodge as a meet-point and jumping off location for the games. Located adjacent to the Covered Bridge, the office is only steps away from the shuttle to the race finish line at Red Tail Camp.

LIV Sotheby’s International Realty broker, Andrea Mancuso Webber, takes a special interest in the outcome of the Championships, as her daughter, Julia Mancuso, is a competitor. Mancuso, the most decorated Olympic female American alpine skier, broke into the World Cup racing scene at age 15. “Super-Jules” – as she is called by her teammates – has an on-snow resume boasting five World Cup wins, four World Championship podium finishes and three Olympic medals, including a gold in the giant slalom at the 2006 games in Turin, Italy.

The FIS Alpine World Ski Championships attracts more than 700 athletes from over 70 nations. A host of media, with potential to reach more than 750 million people is expected, bringing all eyes to the Vail Valley.

“As the locals say, ‘We came for the winter but stayed for the summer,’ said Fitchett. “The 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships provides an opportunity for us to introduce our guests to the many amenities and activities the Mountain Lifestyle provides here in Beaver Creek, Colorado.

Combined with the 1950 World Championships in Aspen, the 2015 event will also signify only the fourth Alpine Championships ever held in the United States, all of them in Colorado.

All 2015 competitions are free for spectators, drawing crowds in the upwards of 15,000 people per day for the races, with crowds swelling to approximately 25,000 during weekend competitions.

In addition to the action on the racecourses, free and ticketed concerts, artistic performances, films, art exhibits, and culinary events, along with spectacular Opening Ceremonies and nightly Medals Presentations, will continue through the culmination of the event, February, 15.

“The 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships gives LIV Sotheby’s International Realty the opportunity to support our community non-profit partners in a World-Class venue,” said Fitchett. “Guests, Athletes and Media will be coming from every corner of the globe and LIV Sotheby’s International Realty enjoys being part of the celebration by hosting our clients and community partners at our Beaver Creek Lodge office.”
