The shadow of the Copper Peak ski flying jump casts a shadow on the fall colors below Saturday afternoon in Ironwood Township. The top of the structure is 241 feet above the crest of the hill. Copper Peak is scheduled to host its first international ski flying event since 1994 this winter — Feb. 28-March 2. On Saturday, dozens of folks in search of fall colors and a vast vista of the area took Copper Peak’s Adventure Ride, offering a ski lift ride from the parking lot to the base of jump structure. From there it’s an 18-story elevator ride to an outlook deck, and then up a few dozen steps to the very top.
