Copper Mountain closes out ski season with style and embraces spring with the famous Sunsation festival, a weekend-long celebration with live music, competitions, and plenty of sunshine to go around.
11:00am - 1:00pm: Red Bull SlopeSoakers
1:00pm: Slopesoaker Awards
1:30pm - 3:30pm: The Spazmatics
3:30pm - 4:00pm: DJ Landry
4:00pm - 5:15pm: Headlining Band - Matt & Kim
The band started in 2004, essentially by accident when Matt and Kim were art students at the prestigious Pratt Institute, where they studied film and illustration, respectively. When Kim wanted to learn to play drums and Matt (who’d been in bands before) was getting his head around a new keyboard, the band was born. Since then, they have earned a Gold Record for the upbeat, stick-in-your-head track “Daylight,” played festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Bonnaroo, along with international festivals like V (U.K), Pukkelpop (Belgium), Fuji (Japan), Big Day Out (Australia), Primavera (Spain), Oya (Norway), SWU (Brazil), as well as hundreds of shows.
On Saturday April 13th beginning at 11:00am, competitors will show off their tricks on rails suspended above two seperate pools of water in Red Bull SlopeSoakers. This twist on a traditional pond skim is free for all to enter but will be capped at 100 participants so be sure to pre-register to secure your spot! There will also be on-site registration open one hour prior to the event, pending availability.

3:00pm - 4:30pm: Headlining Band - Ozomatli
Since forming in 1995, Ozomatli has always juggled two key identities. They are the voice of their city and they are citizens of the world. Their music-- a notorious urban-Latino-and-beyond collision of hip hop and salsa, dancehall and cumbia, samba and funk, merengue and comparsa, East LA R&B and New Orleans second line, Jamaican ragga and Indian raga-- has long followed a key mantra: it will take you around the world by taking you around L.A.
