Snow Flying in Michigan's Upper Peninsula

I was born in Michigan's beautiful and rugged Upper Peninsula. We have pasties, snow, lakes, waterfalls, moose, bear, lynx, eagles, fish... and snow flying!

I've seen this huge snow flying runway. Watch the video - it's crazy! 

It's in Ironwood, Michigan, on top of Copper Peak which sits 1,180 feet above Lake Superior. The Peak has become a year-round tourist attraction, offering a host of activities including mountain biking and the “Copper Peak Adventure Ride” which is a chair lift to the top of the hill that offers a breathtaking 360-degree view of Lake Superior and the north woods below.

After a long awaited hiatus, this enormous structure will again see regular jumps and competition and the Nordic world is eagerly awaiting the return of the sport.
