Weather will turn to shine for Teva Games June 5-8

By Tom Boyd

June 4, 2008 —  The Teva Mountain Games are under way and the weekend’s weather looks like it will co-operate for the most part.

Kayakers in Thursday’s Steep Creekin’ Championships on Homestake Creek will likely see some wet weather, but the sun is likely to come out for the rockin’ Opening Ceremonies at 6 p.m. at Check Point Charlie in the Vail Village.

The Opening Ceremonies has been tagged by organizers as one of the coolest events of the weekend, a moment not to be missed by athletes and spectators alike.

Weather is expected to be sunny through Saturday, making for ideal conditions at all of the many events ongoing at the Teva Mountain Games this weekend in the Vail Village, Homestake Creek (near Redcliff), and Dowd Chute (just west of Vail on Highway 6).

The Ozomatli concert at 6 p.m. Friday is also expected to be ideal – expect a warm sun setting over Check Point Charlie as Pabst Blue Ribbon and SoBe flows as freely as the waters of nearby Gore Creek as the Grammy winning band sets the streets on (metaphorical) fire.

Enjoy and see you out there.
