Sunday, Nov 15. Took the day to play at Copper. Absolutely gorgeous partly cloudy day, sun breaking through the clouds made for some really cool lighting. Snow was brutal – super patchy ice and soft, so you never know when your edge is going to hold. Park setup is still fun though.
With the runs busy and cruddy, I spent most of the afternoon hiking the park features. It’s a great little progression park, and I had a great time working on taking a few new tricks through the features.
“30 Days on the Road” is a blog series tracking my travel for thirty days in October and November; from leaving Alaska on October 27th until Steamboat opens on November 25th. Due to a series of cool opportunities I don’t have to be back at a “real job” until 11/26th, and after a summer that seemed way too long, I’ll be making the most of my free month with as much snow and snow industry fun as I can cram in. The goal is two-fold, first to get you pumped about the upcoming season, and two to help keep track of time as I wander aimlessly for a month.
