Time for the Grime!-Copper and Keystone Open

By: JR

For the first time in Copper Mountain’s history they’ve kicked off the ski season with a double jump line. And to claim a jump line is one thing, but to have a pretty damn legit jump line, that’s just plain impressive.
Big ups to the Woodward at Copper park crew and Copper’s snowmaking teams who busted their butts to make it happen. For the moment, Copper is one of just two resorts in the country currently offering jumps to skiers and riders, the other being Timberline at Mt. Hood.

Keystone Opening 
Jibs for Days!
 At 9:00 am sharp the proverbial ribbon was cut, and the hordes piled into the gondola cabins. One of those cabins was wrapped in large portraits of Max and Edna Dercum, the founders of Keystone and Arapahoe Basin. Max passed away this fall, Edna in 2008, and the gondola serves as a tribute to the duo that dedicated themselves to the sport of skiing, and to Summit County. 



Once at the top, you could either shred T2B (top-to-bottom) hot laps, or make your way to the backside of the mountain where a jib park is currently erected. Featuring 25+ jibs of various shapes, sizes, colors, nationalities, etc, the park was teeming from open ’til close. The Ranger lift conveniently services the park area making for fast laps and an enjoyable ride, as you can watch others get their grind on. We cruised in the park for the morning whilst the sun was shining bright. A handful of pros were on hand, including Bobby Brown, Grant Savidge, Spencer Milbocker and Pat Goodnough. ‘Tis only day 1, and there  was a great deal of technical trickery.
