Press release - Grand Opening

Press release from the opening of CopenHill (Amager Bakke) 4-6th of October 2019

This weekend the sun shone over a fantastic 3-days Grand Opening event at CopenHill!

Following the official inauguration of CopenHill, with a guest list comprising names like Bjarke Ingels and Frank Jensen (City Mayor), thousands of people had found their way to the Copenhagen ski slope on the weekend. A full program for the weekend attracted many Danes and tourists to the ski slopes and festival site, to watch shows ranging from freestyle to uphill cycling and sustainability talks, and simply to be active together. Many skiers were curious to try out the slopes, and the number of subsequent upgraded one-time cards for year passes shows, that the enthusiasm for the new opportunity to ski in the middle of Copenhagen is enormeous. From now on it is possible for the Danes to go skiing daily, and there is great joy among walkers, runners and not least skiers over the new opportunities in Copenhagen.
