The Walker Family

by Sally Francklyn

Meet the Walker family. Jennifer Walker works in the ski and ride school. Their son Colby is a ski patroller, and their other son, Wicks (shortened from Alex, when Colby was young and he couldn’t pronounce those two syllables) works in the trail crew. Since Copper Mountain opened in 1972, and Jennifer joined the ski instructing team in 1977, she’s almost been there as long as the resort’s been turning its’ wheels.
