If you venture into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan your trip will not be complete until you have visited Copper Peak Ski Flying location.
It is a absolute must to take the lift to the base of the jump and then the elevator ride to the mid section. Then if you are brave enough climb the rest of the way to the top.
The view is fantastic and the structure is impressive. To think this coming Feb 2013 Ski Flying experts from around the world and US will be hurling their way from various heights at speeds nearing or exceeding 70 mph to leap into the air and sail hundreds of meters before finally touching the earth once more.
The first person that will greet you at the Lift is a Mr Carlson, a native Yooper, who will brief you on the history of the structure and then whisk you on your way in a chair lift. The elevator attendant will carry the conversation further and fill you with local humor and stories of that may or may not have been exaggerated. On a clear day you can see the world not to mention 3 existing Ski resorts, Black River valley, Lake Superior and the Porcupine Mt. Cost is reasonable well under $20.00 adult and Children under 18 even less.
