The Copper Mountain pipe dragon is in effect~
Things are heating up…. as snowboarding’s finest put on their boxing gloves! The countdown is only a little more than two weeks away from USSA Grand Prix in Colorado – marking the Olympic-road kick off — which determines which professional snowboarders are going to Vancouver to represent the USA snowboard team. Cooper Mountain is hosting the first stop on the circuit and the resort is currently building a massive 22 foot superpipe. It’s on like donkey kong folks with world class riders like Shaun White, Kevin Pearce and Ellery Hollingsworth focusing on Gold Medal visions. NBC will air the Grand Prix on Sunday, December 10-12 at 2pm EST. Stay tuned for more updates along the way…
