For the 2013/14 winter season,Copper Mountain Resort has committed to an investment of close to $7M in capital for improvements. Phase I of the High Alpine Project includes the upgrade and replacement of the Storm King lift. Copper Mountain guests will see a new t-bar lift in its place, providing access to the unforgettable skiing and riding in Spaulding Bowl, Upper Enchanted Forest and Copper Bowl. The new Storm King lift will offer a substantial upgrade doubling the up-hill lift capacity from the original lift. Also, Copper Mountain has installed “Celebrity Ridge,” a new surface lift at the top of the Sierra chairlift providing easier access to some of the best skiing in Colorado. Union Peak, Union Meadows, West Ridge and Copper Bowl will be accessible from the top of this new lift, located adjacent to the top of the Mountain Chief chair. Copper’s commitment to The 12’s also means improved ski out in Spaulding Bowl and rock work within the Sierra area, allowing the high alpine terrain at Copper Mountain to open earlier and stay open longer.
