On The Hill: Surf’s up at Copper with Maui’s Kelly Potts (snow video)

On The Hill is brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute.

VIDEO: Our good friend Kelly Potts is in town from Maui and we went to Copper Mountain for tropical turns on a scorcher Sunday. Kelly runs the KP Programs, an all-female, teenage developmental surfing clinic and also a 21-plus women’s retreat. Both programs are offered for free to the women in her community through Kelly’s hard work and dedication and the help of Kelly’s main sponsor Prana.

Summit Daily field report: It’s going to be a good one out there with a fresh coating of snow to make everything nice and soft.

Weather: High 26 F, low 4 F. Partly cloudy with a chance of snow.

Lift lines: Should be pretty empty out there for middle of the week.

Breakdown: The sun was out and Maui’s Kelly Potts was in town. The pro surfer spent the day trekking across Copper, from the park to the groomers and back.
