Freeskiing Open at Copper Mountain

The 10th annual U.S. Freeskiing Open, literally the largest event in the freeskiing world, kicks off today at Copper Mountain.

It is the first time Copper has hosted the high-flying event — which features slopestyle, superpipe and big air competitions — since it was announced that the Open’s long stay in Vail had ended.

According to the latest list of registered athletes, this week’s event will include 63 female skiers and 323 males, the largest number in the Open’s 10-year history.
