It’s a Snow Day at Copper Mountain!

14 Inches of Fresh Snow in the last day, 28 inches in the past 72 hours 


The season is starting off with a bang at Copper, literally and figuratively. In the past 3 days Copper has received 28 inches of fresh powder. In addition, Patrol has been busy blasting terrain to get it open to the public. As of Nov. 17, Copper has 4 lifts open, providing 215 acres on 18 trails, with a 41 inch mid-mountain base. Copper is experiencing some of the best early season conditions in recent memory.


Make sure to enjoy all your favorite Thanksgiving activities at Copper:

Thank you for turkey, stuffing and of course cranberry sauce.
