“I don’t think a lot of people know we have this going on up high.” -Olivia Butrymavich
Copper Mountain may have closed to the public two months ago but lifts are still spinning and elite athletes have been flocking to the Colorado resort to get in spring training runs well into the month of June. Members of the US Ski Team including Mikaela Shiffrin and youth athletes from Colorado ski clubs have been taking advantage of the high-speed quad accessing 846 vertical feet of skiing. They may be playing golf at the base of Copper but they’re still ripping gates up top. Awesome.
