The Tippy Top of the Mountain

The top of Rendezvous Lift at Copper Mountain What draws us upward into the snowclouds? What do humans find at 12,400 feet above sea level in the middle of winter? Wind-whipped tundra, pure thin air, the sight of the Mosquito Range glittering like a Christmas card, and the dream of gliding for miles over crystals of frozen droplets.
These beginning skiers will always know that they earned the thrill of swishing over snowfields like half-man and half-bird. The thrill resides in the fibers of their being.
