Park Wars: Copper Mt to open 22′ superpipe tomorrow, first in country again

Posted By: The Ski Channel on November 27, 2009 4:03 pm

Well it appears the folks over at Copper Mountain have seen Keystone readying to open A51 Park tomorrow, and will raise them a 22′ superpipe in retaliation tomorrow. As the Summit County terrain park wars rage on, the real winners (us skiers and boarders) couldn’t be any happier.

Copper’s amazing snow-making combined with the generous storms thus far in the season, will allow them to once again become the first resort in the country with a superpipe ready to shred.

Why the frenzied pace to open a super pipe you might ask? Copper’s pipe will play host to the US Snowboarding Team for training sessions. The US Snowboard Team will have exclusive use of the pipe from 8:30-10:00 a.m. on weekends and 9-11 a.m. mid-week leading up to the first USSA Grand Prix happening at Copper, Dec. 10-12.
