Photo detail

Former U.S. Freestyle Ski Team member Cooper Schell free skiing on Storm Peak circa 1990. Schell grew up in Steamboat under the tutelage of coach Park Smalley and stood on World Cup podiums in the mid- to late 1980s with second place finishes in Germany and France. He also was a very down-to-earth guy and super fun to ski with, according to Steamboat Today columnist Tom Ross. Ross can recall traveling to Winter Park to cover Schell, along with Nelson Carmichael, in the U.S. National Championships.
