For many folks, closing day marks the time to hang up skis and snowboards and plan for summer adventures: hiking, biking, rafting, camping. Noah Schwander has his eyes on summer, too, but as Copper’s Terrain Park and Progression Manager, it’s his job to ensure there’s no end to the snow even though the lifts are no longer spinning.

I live down on the plains of Denver and the signs of spring are all around. Temps have been climbing into the sixties and seventies, the trees are starting to bud and my mind is wandering to summer adventures.

I learned to ski when I was twelve years old. My dad took my friend and me up to a resort that used to have a rope tow (I know, eons ago) and plopped us at the base of the bunny hill. He showed us how to clip into our skis, gave us a pep talk, then he was off to carve his own turns for a few hours before meeting us for lunch. We managed to muddle our way through.
