Copper Big Mountain Program

Are you looking for something more? Are you ready to master the backside of the mountain? Maybe finally try rails in the park? How about dropping off that cornice in Spaulding Bowl? Maybe you just want to shred the powder and explore some new tree-runs over the course of a whole season?

Freeride Skiing & Snowboarding

Copper's Big Mountain Program is a unique program at Copper that offers students the opportunity to go with a coach and rip the mountain in a whole new way.  Learn to attack the bumps, hammer the steeps, or land your first 360.  Students in this program can progress their skills in a fun, purely recreational setting.  In the Posse we encourage excellence in skiing and riding and responsibility on the slopes.  We push each other take our ability to the next level and beyond!
