Free Your Mountain Programs

Copper Mountain offers a variety of fun and ways to enjoy our mountain, your way. This isn't saying that everything is free, but check out the Tucker Mountain Snowcat rides, the Secret! Pass (shhhh), Copper's naturally divided terrain, as well as the on-mountain orientations tours.

Free Tucker Mountain Snowcats

Jump on the snowcat for a free ride to experience parts of the mountain you only dreamed about last night. Copper's free snowcat rides, to legendary Tucker Mountain, are the essence of skiing and riding liberty: catching a free ride, choosing your own line and never wiping the smile off your face. Tucker Mountain and Copper Bowl offer expert skiers and riders unprecedented access to over 273 acres and 12,000 vertical feet of Copper's amazing high alpine back bowls. Tucker Mountain Snowcat access is the closest thing to a backcountry experience that you'll ever find inside any resort.
