For the first time ever, Tough Mudder held its Colorado event at Copper. With over 9,000 participants and 1,000 spectators, the resort was lively and exciting! Participants made their way up the mountain in a grueling 10-mile course that lead them over to Green Acres, all the way up underneath the American Eagle, down from Solitude Station to West Village then back to Center for a grand finish! Take a look at the course map:
One of Copper's most exciting projects this summer is the construction of the Rocky Mountain Coaster. This alpine coaster will descend over 5,000 feet through the forest under and west of the American Flyer lift.
We've got a crew that's been working hard to prepare to lay the track and now, the track is beginning to go in. Check it out:
Summer kicked off on the resort on June 10. With all our activities, events and literally an entire month of non-stop sunshine, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Check it out:

Nick Slaton takes what he learns from ski patrolling and uses it when he backcountry skis (or maybe it’s the other way around). Because he’s often in the area where avalanches would occur, he takes pride in working with a dog who’s trained to perform in this serious situation. Slaton is not the owner of Recco - one of Copper Mountain Ski Resort's avalanche dogs - yet he’s her third handler besides her actual dad, John Reller. After she spends the day with him at work, she also spends three to four nights a week sleeping at his house.

The Bucket List
The movie “The Bucket List” largely was forgettable – save for the namesake wish list that so many of us have crafted of gotta-do activities.
Bucket-list items for skiers and snowboarders may include visiting resorts around the world, getting "jiggy" with it on the gondola, attending the Winter Olympics or a World Alpine
Ski Championships, or spending a day (and lots of dollars) helicopter skiing.
All are worthy goals.
