Rob Magazzu, 1971-2012, (pictured), loved ski racing. He discovered NASTAR racing as a young skier and continued to ski NASTAR events over the years at various locations. In 2002 Rob “discovered” Ski Cooper and the racing opportunities available. Rob LOVED Ski Cooper and especially the Cooper Cups. His enjoyment encouraged him to race at surrounding venues: Beaver Creek Monday races and Vail Thursday races. The Magazzu family promotes ski racing in Rob’s memory.
Cooper Cups are community giant slalom races open to all alpine skiers, telemarkers and snowboarders. Race entry fee is $11.50 per racer, no day of registration. A valid Cooper day pass or season pass is required.
Ken and Michelle will be providing goodie bags for all Cooper Cup registered racers and drawings will be held for additional prizes. The Piney Start Shack (more like a mansion) was a benevolent gift from the Magazzus, long time supporters of ski racing at Ski Cooper.
