Copper Peak is the highest ski jump in the world.  Where Olympic ski jumpers compete at heights of 90 meters and 120 meters, Copper Peak starts at 170 meters high.  This is why they call it “sky flying” instead of “ski jumping”, with ski flyers soaring about 600 feet to the ground.   It is the only ski flying jump in the western hemisphere, with only 5 other jumps located in Europe.
