Guests enjoy freeskiing to open the U.S. Ski Team Speed Center at Copper Mountain. Thanks to 87 new HKD automatic snow guns, it’s a speed course that is the only one of its kind in the world this early in the season, allowing racers to reach speeds of up to 75 mph.

Skiing with the US Ski Team at Copper Mountain’s new Speed Center
