Note to ALL Copper Guests: During Warrior Dash weekend, Copper’s mountain bike trails and Digglers will be CLOSED to summer guests, including Diggler use in the Village. Scenic Chair lift rides will be open with the normal operating hours, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. (weather permitting). During the week leading up to the event, there will be a few random mountain bike trail re-routes on the lower section of Redtail, with directional signs at the re-route points. For more information on what is open, please visit Guest Services in Copper Sports - Center (formerly the MAC).
Enjoy an amazing live music performance in an intimate setting during the second of three shows in the Saturday Concert Series. Live music on Saturday, August 21 is provided by Reverend Horton Heat in the Pavilion from 8 - 10 p.m. Admission is FREE for Copper lodging guests, and $15 for all others. Without a doubt, the mighty Reverend has won a cult following around the world these past 20+ years with a nearly endless touring ethic and musical style that's equally as rooted in tradition as it is in breaking it. He's one of the lynchpins of the neoroots movement and responsible for moving the genre forward and garnering it a whole new generation of fans. Mix that with a mythic stage presence and you've got a live act that turns rock clubs into psychobilly tent revivals across the country.
Information on purchasing Reverend Horton Heat tickets:
While at Copper this weekend, make sure to check out the Woodward at Copper Open House on Saturday, August 21, 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. The best way to stay in shredding shape in the offseason is to take a Woodward at Copper Fall Class, ranging from Snowflex® and Trampoline, skateboard and tumbling, to the all-new strength & conditioning classes. These classes are great for all ages, from groms to adults. The fine folks with Woodward at Copper are having an Open House at the Barn on Saturday, August 21 for those folks that have questions or want to get signed up for a Fall Class, and as an extra incentive to get into the Barn to shred, the 2, 4 and 6 p.m. public sessions are ½ off that day. Register by calling the Barn at 970.968.3400 or by completing the form online at www.woodwardatcopper.com/site/ourprograms/Classes.
