Mother Nature has been cooperating the past couple weeks – since Copper opened for private race training on Oct. 23, we have received 35 inches of natural snow. The conditions are great, so come on up to check out some of the best opening conditions in recent memory. Copper plans to open with full tree-to-tree coverage on Main Vein, Rhapsody, The Easy Rider Learning area and about 10 features in the Eagle Jib Park.

 

Join KSMT at Jack’s Bar on Friday, Nov. 5 from 4 - 6 p.m. for the first après party of the season. KSMT will broadcast live from Jack’s Bar and the party will include great specials from Coors, lift ticket and Sat. night Lift Off Concert ticket giveaways, as well as tons of other prize giveaways, including a chance to win a pair of Liberty Skis.

The Rocky Mountain Super Pass/Super Pass Plus Service Center is now open, providing guests all the help they will need to get up the mountain with a minimum of fuss – sign the waiver, get your picture taken and get the pass printed all in one place. Guests will need to go to the top of the escalators in Copper One Lodge, through Copper Sports – Center (formerly the MAC), next to Jack’s Bar to make it happen, then get up on the mountain for some shredding. 

 

As a ‘Thank You’ to all of Copper’s loyal fans, we are offering a pretty sweet deal…stop by any of the Summit County Christy Sports locations or the Center Village Guest Services desk through Nov. 7 to purchase a Five-day Copper Mountain Four Pack. That’s right, five days of skiing or riding at Copper for only $139…less than $28 per day to ski/ride your favorite Summit County mountain. Sorry, but you must purchase this in person.

About Copper

Copper Mountain knows there are skiers and riders out there who have never felt the thrill of waking up and hearing on the radio that school was cancelled. There are people who have never spent a whole day in the snow doing anything their heart desired. No joke. These people, and those who understand snow day bliss, are the reason we do what we do. So come to Copper to take a day, or two or seven and experience the mountain. Welcome everybody, to the home of the snow day. For up-to-date weather, photos and more visit www.coppercolorado.com.  This season make sure to check out Woodward at Copper, the premier trick stomping playground that features The Barn, a 19,400 sq. ft. indoor facility complete with indoor artificial snow jumps and jib lines, foam pits, skate features and Olympic fly-bed trampolines, offering indoor and outdoor training programs where you can learn tricks in the Barn and take them on snow the same day. www.woodwardatcopper.com
