As a former ski jumper, Charlie brings a lifetime of knowledge and experience to Copper Peak’s board of directors. He has been involved with Copper Peak since 1969, became a board member in 1995 and now serves as Board President (and has for the past 20 years). In 2013, he was inducted into the Ski Jumping Hall of Fame.
Charlie is the author of Soaring with the Eagles, a retrospective of the region’s history of ski jumping. As Copper Peak’s historian and champion, he exemplifies the incredible effort and commitment the region’s people have devoted to the vision of Copper Peak, both as a tourist attraction and as an international ski jumping venue.
Charlie has designed smaller ski jumps, including Wolverine in Northeast Ironwood, MI. As a physics major out of Purdue, his broad based science background is very useful in upgrading the chairlift and elevator and keeping the facility operating.
