Tree care products company Arborjet Inc., Woburn, Massachusetts, has announced that it will once again be a sponsor of the Xfinity Birds of Prey Audi FIS Ski World Cup races in Beaver Creek, Colorado, Dec. 6 through Dec. 8, 2019. The event is organized by the Vail Valley Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides year-round extended learning and career readiness opportunities for youth and families in Eagle County through YouthPower365. VVF has hosted the races since 1997.
Ranked as the number one overall ski race by the athletes and coaches who participate, the Beaver Creek Xfinity Birds of Prey Audi FIS Ski World Cup has become legendary in the ski world.
The formidable Birds of Prey racecourse at Beaver Creek Mountain will challenge an international roster of top athletes for one week of racing featuring men’s alpine, super G, downhill and giant slalom competitions. Race week officially starts Dec. 3, the first optional day of downhill training. This year’s event is scheduled to include live music, ski films, parties and much more in the heart of Beaver Creek Village.
Arborjet’s mission is to develop the most effective formulations and delivery systems to preserve, protect and ultimately save trees. Trees help reduce the impact of climate change by reducing CO2 in the atmosphere and by absorbing stormwater runoff while providing many other important environmental and economic benefits.
“At Arborjet, we recognize that environmental responsibility and good stewardship are essential in sustaining our business, our customers and our planet. We are proud to sponsor this event, where they also value the importance of education and environmental sustainability,” says Russ Davis, Arborjet’s president and CEO.
At this year’s event, Arborjet will launch its new Ski for a Tree campaign, aligned with its highly successful Saving America’s Iconic Trees program. Both efforts have the aim of helping preserve the country’s most treasured trees. It will be working in conjunction with Walking Mountains Science Center in support of its mission to raise awareness about climate change and to broaden education within the mountain environment through natural science and sustainability programs.
