Looking for inspiration?

How about a meeting of top athletes?
You should be able to find it this weekend at Copper Mountain.

Copper's hosting the Special Olympics Colorado Winter Games for the 20th consecutive year.

Competition begins at 10 a.m. Sunday with alpine skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. The Opening Ceremony is 7:15 to 8 p.m. in the Burning Stones Plaza. They'll light the Flame of Hope and there'll be a Snow Cat parade followed by fireworks. The Games continue Monday.
Copper's snow forecast is a possible 3-6 inches late Saturday and another 2-4 Sunday.
If you go, stop by Zizzo Ski Bar, where they're matching dollar for dollar for Special Olympics.
