Saturday was the opening day for the Main Vein Superpipe at Copper Mountain. It’s the third season where Copper has opened the first Superpipe in North America:
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.
Personally I won’t be at Copper this season but I expect the terrain parks won’t be a disappointment (they never have been). If you’re a Colorado Pass holder keep in mind Breckenridge has also opened a lot over on Peak 8 this season.
