Copper skiers cited for cutting rope

COPPER MOUNTAIN – A sheriff’s deputy cited four men Monday for allegedly skiing into an area closed for avalanche blasting at Copper Mountain Resort.

Copper Mountain patrollers were setting up explosives for avalanche control in Spaulding Bowl when they reportedly observed the four men duck under a closure rope. Patrollers caught up with the men – identified by the sheriff’s office report as Derek Shandonay, William Martinez, Aaron Lucas and Jeffrey Munsil – and escorted them to patrol headquarters.

The deputy cited the men for violation of the Skier Safety Act and released them.
