97-Year-Old Great-Grandma Rides 3,000-Foot Alpine Slide

Not to be outdone by her young great-grandkids, young-at-heart Hazel took on the 3,000-foot alpine slide without hesitation - and with a big smile!

WINTER PARK - A spry 97-year-old woman is now the oldest to take on Winter Park's Alpine Slide. 

Hazel Hanson, her grandsons, and great-grandkids took a trip to the ski resort recently during her visit to Colorado from Washington. 

Not to be outdone by her young great-grandkids, young-at-heart Hazel took on the 3,000-foot alpine slide without hesitation - and with a big smile! 

It's the longest alpine slide in Colorado, with 600 vertical feet of heart-pounding track. 

At 97, Winter Park tells us she's now the oldest person to ride the slide. 

How cool is Hazel?!
