Copper Mountain Feb. 2 2011 - I remember the date because it was my son's (who was working at Copper at the time) 23rd birthday.
According to a patroller - the only other person we saw on the mountain - it was -50 at the top and we saw it posted as -30 at the base so we called it -40 for bragging purposes. After two or three runs my son starting making noises about child abuse so we decided to take a break from which we never returned. The worst part of it was the skiing was lousy - it was like skiing on styrofoam. As far as bragging rights - most everybody thought we were idiots.
