You’ve never seen summer skiing like this. Unless you’ve seen or heard of CopenHill, the Danish grass-covered ski resort that sits atop Copenhagen’s carbon-free powerhouse. Then you’re probably as fascinated as I am by the pristine skiing and partying paradise that is CopenHill. Featured in SLVSH’s cheerful montage “COPENHILL” which was released this fall (which is a fantastic look at the pristine energy of the scene), the ski resort was host to the first Scandinavian team battle l ‘last year. In June, your favorite skiers returned alongside new faces to dazzle once again in the Danish summer sun.
At its roots, Copenhill features the rise of a brilliantly vibrant community, albeit in an unlikely location. It’s a wonderfully essential reminder that skiing is here to bring people together. It is a craft that is individual in its perfection, but communal in its growth, and anything that does not grow is sure to stall. Skiing is growing as regions like CopenHill spring up around the world, offering enthusiasts a place to devote their energy to sport, music, art; just a fucking good time.
Jesper Tjäder, Emil Granbom, Johan Berg, Siver Voll, Anouk Andraska, Christian Moser, Cal Carson, Alex Hackel, Isabella Tvede and Jakob Ebskamp put on an absolute spectacle as Team Sweden again took victory. That being said, there’s plenty of action to unpack, so check out two of our favorite recaps.
Of course, we have Line Skis to thank, for sponsoring and helping to organize such an event. Leave it to Line to be the first to support one of the biggest and most innovative events skiing has to offer. Probs to the guys and ladies out there.
