As part of their opening weekend festivities Copper Mountain Resort will once again host the annual U.S. Ski Team naming ceremony celebration Saturday, Nov. 8, in the resort's Center Village. The event, previously held in Vail, is now in its second year at Copper. "It's a great opportunity for fans to come out and check out their favorite athletes," resort spokeswoman Stephanie Sweeney said of the celebration. "We're excited to be hosting it for the second year in a row.
While in-bounds skiers will take full advantage of the 8 to 12 inches of fresh snow that dropped on Summit County Wednesday, Colorado Avalanche Information Center forecasters are once again urging caution with backcountry travel. The CAIC bumped the avalanche risk from moderate (level 2) to considerable (level 3) Wednesday morning, meaning natural avalanches are possible and human-triggered slides are likely.
Making presumptions, ignoring warning signs, falling prey to the herd mentality or an over-eagerness to carve fresh lines — in the backcountry, these missteps can result in fatal mistakes. It's a feeling that pro freeride and backcountry skier Elyse Saugstad knows all too well. In 2012 she was swept away in a large slide on Stevens Pass in Washington state, a story made famous by a Pulitzer Prize–winning New York Times multimedia piece. The avalanche killed three of the 13 in the party.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
