  • Beaver Creek's Birds Of Prey

    Here's a cool video. If you haven't slid down this run yet, put it on your bucket list. World Cup races at BOP are on TV every year. I love to see places I've skied on TV.

    The runs that make up the birds of prey course are my daughter's favorite though, when we mere mortals ski them, we make about a million more turns than the racers and BC has the big jumps fenced off so you can't do one of those 70-80 yards flying through the air. The cherry on top of the BOP runs is the relatively new Talon's Restaurant at the bottom. Nothing better than a blue bird day, a run down the course, and then a cold craft beer and grilled wings on the deck at Talon's ..... HEAVEN!

    My wife is scared to death of BOP ..... she even hates the lift ride up to the top if we ski in from Bachelor's Gulch just to ride the BOP lift up to the main mountain.

    Here is a good POV video of the run

          Every time I watch Hans' video of the run down BOP I have to blow it up to full screen mode and get just a couple feet from the screen. It makes me sorta dizzy.


          BTW, what's the trick to getting videos to embed correctly? Even using the 'Insert Video' icon, it never seems to work for me.

            We composing posts from a full web version of the forum this is what I do:

            1 - click the "Insert Video" filmstrip button
            2 - this gives you a popup where you can insert the video URL
            3 - the full video link including the "https://" .......
            3 - click "ok" and you are done

            Code should look like this "(video)https://Inserted YouTube URL(/video)" Except the parenthesis "( )" should be brackets "[ ]"

            This works well for me for most video hosting sites except Vimeo. For Vimeo or if the above does not work for you just go to the site that is hosting the video and look for the "Share" feature. Most will have an option to get embed code. You just copy and paste that code into your post and ... VOILA!

            EDIT -- Make sure you are using the full url (youtube.com) for YouTube videos. I noticed in the link you posted above you are using a shortened url (youtu.be)

            Here is your initial video inserted with the full address:

              I'll try it with a video of this BOP maniac.



              That's it! Lesson learned? Don't use the SHARE link. Thanks!
