Copper Mountain, CO… Oct. 27, 2005... Copper Mountain announces the music and movie line-ups for Lift Off, where Copper will not only host exciting entertainment, but also give-away a guaranteed 71,000 vertical feet per winner with Canadian Mountain Holidays – the world’s first, largest and most sophisticated heli-skiing and riding operation. 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 access to all Lift Off music and movie events.


Heli-Days will feature teams of four as they 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 Lift Off Boarding Pass scanned, the team will earn another chance to win the grand prize trip with Canadian Mountain Holidays.


Copper’s major music event on the evening of Nov. 5 will feature Ozomatli and opening artist, Michael Glabicki from Rusted Root. Look for plenty of songs from the Grammy award-winning Street Signs, the band’s first full-length studio album in three years. Street Signs bears a new Middle Eastern influence mixed with Ozomatli’s trademark blend of hip-hop and Latin styles. Doors open at 7:30 pm, Lift Off Boarding Pass is needed for admission into the Conference Center. Space is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.


Copper has partnered with BIAS media to bring Level1’s, “Shanghai Six”, Mack Dawg’s, “From _ with Love” and Teton Gravity Research’s, “Tangerine Dream” to the Lift Off movie event on Nov. 12.
