NOTE: This program is designed exclusively for those new to snow sports. It is not meant for someone who already knows one discipline and wants to crossover to another. If you are familiar with skiing or riding and can get on chairlifts, know about the mountain, or have done it before, this program is not for you. We will be assessing this at the outset of the program. If you are deemed to be already a snow sports participant by your instructor, we will excuse you from the program and offer you a refund for the remainder of the program costs.

Copper is making snow, along with Mother Nature's help!
Copper will open for the season on Friday, November 7th!
