Gypsum, CO – Colorado’s very first woody biomass facility started delivering electricity to the Vail Valley today! This is a huge accomplishment for the entire region as this renewable energy project will use pine beetle kill timber for its main source of fuel; helping to rid the surrounding National Forests of serious wild fire hazards.
A Big Congratulations goes out to Holy Cross Electric, Eagle Valley Clean Energy, West Range Reclamation, Eagle County and the Town of Gypsum, for working together in this endeavor. The Vail Valley now leads the way in Colorado with its renewable energy efforts and forest health concerns. Never has a Colorado utility worked with the private sector to create a commercial grade biomass project; especially one that generates base-load renewable power. Holy Cross Electric and Eagle Valley Clean Energy successfully created this local alliance several years ago and now the surreal has become a reality. This facility will produce a bit more than 11 Megawatts of power; 10 MW of which will be distributed locally by Holy Cross Energy; enough to power nearly 10,000 residential units per year.

The Men’s World Cup Ski races will be held on the world famous Beaver Creek Birds of Prey race course this coming week. Training starts this Sunday November 27th with races starting on November 30th through December 3, 2012. The incredible Birds of Prey Mens Downhill will headline the races; it has had a colorful history of champions. These highly skilled downhill skiers will literally fly over the snow at speeds upwards near 70 MPH while trying to stay on course until they get to the bottom of the mountain. The Birds of Prey course features some of the most technical jumps on the entire Mens downhill circuit; it drops nearly 2500 feet in elevation and is regarded as one of the most difficult courses in the World. This will be the the only Mens race in the United States this year. There will also be a Mens Super G and a Giant Slalom Event during the weekend long race series.
