At Copper, it's all about being passionate for what you do and sharing that passion with others. Woodward Ski Coach Brooke Potter explains.
What brought you to Copper?
I have been coming to Woodward Copper as an athlete since 2009 and I absolutely fell in love with the place. When I was 18 and finally old enough to apply, it was a no brainer! I consider Copper home now.
What does a typical day look like for you?
Waking up around 6, doing some yoga and foam rolling, and heading to Copper. By 9:30am in the winter or summer, I’ll be on hill skiing and coaching until around 2 or 3. After skiing, we all head to the Barn for progression on trampolines, spring floor, and Skate Lite. After getting off work around 4, I’ll head home and get ready for another day on hill. It’s the best!
What’s your favorite part of the job?
My favorite part about my job is by far seeing campers and kids getting stoked after learning a new trick. Sharing my passion with others is such a dream come true especially when it means kids reaching their goals and working hard.
What’s one thing about your job that you’d want people to know?
Be prepared to do anything! From getting kids on their first box with parallel skis to coaching backflips, it’s super important to be versatile as an employee to create the best experience possible. It also keeps the job exciting with new guests and backgrounds each day.
What do you like most about working for Copper as a whole?
I love how employees are treated like family. Everyone knows each other and looks out for each other, it’s really a great thing. It’s got that small local mountain feel.
If someone was thinking about applying for a job at Copper, what would you tell them?
