COPPER MOUNTAIN, CO - (News Release - Nov. 24, 2007) - Copper opened the Main Vein Superpipe today. For the third consecutive season, Copper boasts the first Superpipe opening in North America. For the debut, Copper's Superpipe welcomed ski and snowboard pros, multiple media outlets and many others.
Copper's pipe is a product of collaboration between Copper's nationally recognized Catalyst Terrain Park team and Snowpark Technologies (SPT). SPT and Copper will now work together to develop, design and build Copper's nationally recognized Catalyst Terrain Park and the other parks throughout the mountain. Copper's Catalyst Terrain Park and Main Vein Superpipe will host the Suzuki US Freeskiing Open and USASA Nationals in 2008.
Copper currently offers 159 acres of skiing and riding with one high speed six-pack, three high speed quads and two beginner lifts. Look for the Catalyst Terrain Park in late December.
Copper's Eagle Jib Park is open at the top of the American Eagle lift with more than 10 boxes, rails and others jib features — the Eagle Jib Park hosted the Leftover Yam and Jive Turkey Rail Jam on Friday, Nov. 23.
