Not soaring gently into that dark night

And speaking of the Copper Peak International Ski Flying Facility, we've recently learned that the eagles and raptors are apparently the only ones enjoying the hill's updrafts, since skiers haven't launched themselves off the jump since 1994.

There's an interesting website that decries that fact, noting that Copper Peak should be the US ski jumping equivalent of Yankee Stadium, Lambeau Field, Churchill Downs, or the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Meanwhile, the organization that maintains Copper Peak as an observation tower in the summer has its own website, with an important message from its president.

If nothing else, at least it's not the ski jumping equivalent of Tiger Stadium.
