It’s time to break out those swimsuits and sunglasses because we are going to be working on our tan at this fiesta.  But safety first, as we will be trying to break the world record for the most people to apply sunscreen at the same time. Just come on over to Burning Stones Plaza between 1:00 and about 3 p.m., apply some Zinka sunscreen, have your picture taken and share it with all of your friends on Facebook. It really is that easy!

 

It’s also time for someone to have their life changed forever. That’s right; we will be giving away the Snow Day Fiesta to one lucky guest.  We’ll even fill up the gas tank! For your last chance to enter to win the Fiesta, log-on to Facebook, “Like” Copper Mountain (www.Facebook.com/CopperMtn), and then head into the ‘Your Snow Day’ tab and click where it says, “Thanks we ‘Like’ you too. Click here to enter to win.” Fill out the form and you are entered to win! Do not need to be present to win the Fiesta! Restrictions apply.


Looking for something for the “big” kids out there on Easter? Copper’s got you covered, with a brand new Facebook-only Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt. So, starting around noon on Easter, April 24, Copper will post hints, photos, clues, etc. on our Facebook Fan Page (www.Facebook.com/CopperMtn) of where the roughly ten eggs are hidden on the big rock (aka the mountain). Guests will use these clues to find eggs with great prizes in them, including a Copper Mountain 2011-12 Four Pack, a brand new pair of Icelantic Skis, a couple of snowboards, a couple of Woodward at Copper One Hit Wonder Sessions and much more. Once you find one of the eggs, open it up to find out how to redeem your prize. Happy hunting!

 

Silly rabbit, tricks are for kids!  In the afternoon, the Easter Bunny and Peeps in the Pipe will be showing off their skills.  In addition, get ready for golf season with Egg Putt-Putt; with 9 holes of "greens" on the snow and Easter eggs for golf balls.  Putters and eggs provided, and don't worry, we're not using raw or hard boiled eggs for this one! Once the kids come down from their sugar high, mom and dad should purchase their 2011 Copper Creek Season Pass for only $349, the best price of the season, valid only through April 24. For more details, visit www.CopperColorado.com/winter/summer/golf.

 

This just happened: Copper Mountain here to end mountain monogamy, so come get some. There’s no question of loyalty here, it’s just a day riding a mountain with easier access, free parking and fewer crowds. The Swinger’s Pass has been re-activated for the remainder of the 2010-11 season, so just grab your season pass from that “other” mountain, sneak over to Copper and pick up the Swinger’s Pass…one day at Copper for only $39, for the remainder of the season.

About Copper

Copper Mountain knows there are skiers and riders out there who have never felt the thrill of waking up and hearing on the radio that school was cancelled. There are people who have never spent a whole day in the snow doing anything their heart desired. No joke. These people, and those who understand snow day bliss, are the reason we do what we do. So come to Copper to take a day, or two or seven and experience the mountain. Welcome everybody, to the home of the snow day. For up-to-date weather, photos and more visit www.coppercolorado.com

 

This season make sure to check out Woodward at Copper, the premier trick stomping playground that features The Barn, a 19,400 sq. ft. indoor facility complete with indoor artificial snow jumps and jib lines, foam pits, skate features and Olympic fly-bed trampolines, offering indoor and outdoor training programs where you can learn tricks in the Barn and take them on snow the same day. For a virtual tour of The Barn, program details, videos, pictures and much more, visit www.WoodwardatCopper.com.
