Copper Mountain, CO…September 1, 2011...The changing of the seasons is always a bittersweet time for us Coloradoans—we mournfully pack away our mountain bikes and hiking boots while eagerly anticipating the snowy season just around the corner.

The Grammy-packed lineup will draw locals, visitors and homeowners alike, making the Village at Copper the Labor Day gathering place of Summit County. Get your fill of free outdoor live music, dozens of kid’s activities, artist exhibits and more at Copper Country.
