Copper Peak, the iconic ski flying hill in Ironwood, Michigan, will once again play host to another international competition on May 11, 2019. The event will be none other than Red Bull 400, the world’s steepest 400-meter race. The principle is simple: participants start at the bottom of the ski jump and race 400 meters uphill 40 stories to the top of the largest artificial ski jump tower in the world. The nearly vertical race challenges participants’ speed and endurance, and is guaranteed to put the participants’ calves, quads and fitness, to the ultimate test.
More than 1,000 racers are expected to challenge the hill. Over 4,000 spectators enjoyed last year’s inaugural Copper Peak Red Bull 400. This event is FREE for spectators.
