Billy Demong is America’s only Olympic Gold Medalist in Nordic Combined. He joined Copper Peak as co-chair along with Copper Peak Organizer Bob Jacquart to lead fundraising efforts. Billy has made two trips, so far, up to Ironwood to help get the word out about Copper Peak and get others excited about the project while bringing a plethora of knowledge of Ski Jumping & Nordic Combined in his back pocket.
Demong notes, “Our vision for Copper Peak is to provide the best year-round training site in the world for our elite athletes as well as host the world’s most important year-round international competitions, the FIS Summer Grand Prix Finale, which features Olympic and World Cup Athletes from around the world.
I believe this project is not just viable, but an incredible competitive advantage for our elite Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined athletes. It will benefit our athletes while serving as a huge economic asset for the surrounding areas.”
