EARLY SEASON FESTIVAL "LIFT-OFF" KICKS OFF 2005/06 WINTER SEASON

October 14, 2005


Participants Can Win Heli-Skiing and Riding Trips, Enjoy Music, Movies, Demos and More

Copper Mountain, CO… Oct. 14, 2005... Copper Mountain announces Lift-Off, the resort's first-ever early-season festival, where Copper will give-away heli-skiing and riding trips. Lift-Off will also feature live music, après ski parties and an early season demo center. The Lift-Off Boarding Pass*, available for $19 at Pass Wagon events or at Copper Mountain Guest Services Desks will be an add-on to the lift product and will track teams through the Heli-Days competition and provide unlimited access to all Lift-Off events.

During Lift-Off's Heli-Days competition**, teams of four will compete to see how many days their team can ski or ride at Copper Mountain from first chair on Nov. 4 to Noon on Nov. 12. For each day that a team member gets the Boarding Pass scanned, the team will earn another chance to win the grand prize trip with Canadian Mountain Holidays - a world-class helicopter skiing and riding operation in British Columbia. Heli-Days winners will be announced at the Lift-Off movie event on Nov. 12. 

Anticipate those soon-to-come powder days with other ski and ride "addicts" while watching the videos, enjoying drink specials and Lift-Off parties at several of Copper's bars. Look for a major nighttime movie event on Nov. 12; Copper is partnering with BIAS media to show movies from Level 1, Mack Dawg and TGR.

Copper will live up to its reputation as a notable live music venue, brining in bands to rock in Copper's Burning Stones Plaza on Nov. 5, 6, 12 and 13. A major act will perform in the evening on Nov. 5 in the Copper Conference Center, details to be announced. Lift-Off's Early Season Demo Center will let skiers and riders leave the early-season skis and boards at home and kick off the season on the latest and greatest ski and snowboard equipment.

* Boarding Pass provides access to ski and snowboard demos, concerts, movies and après ski food and beverage specials. Boarding Pass does not provide Lift Access.
