There was some kind of sled that got brought to Copper about 20 years ago. If I remember, it had runners that allowed some form of control based on how you lean, like a flexible skeleton sled kinda, and they also had a leash. They were trying to see if they could get approved to allow them on the mountain.

So a few of the LiftOps supervisors took them up Flyer, which was the lift I worked. I was at the top when they got off. I thought it was the stupidest idea ever but lifties are often psychotic.

I remember just seeing them launch off the lip of the road and then disappeared. Never heard anything else about them. I think one of them got hurt.
