Courage Classic Recap

Courage Classic was an amazing success! About 2,500 cyclists came out to take on a variety of routes ranging from the Copper Loop, Vail Pass and family-friendly routes around the resort. The top individual fundraiser brought in $63,000! All of the money raised benefits the Children's Hospital Colorado.

Tough Mudder at Copper

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: 

Rocky Mountain Coaster Update - July 2017

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:

Game of Fetch... Sometimes with a Buried Skier

by Sally Francklyn

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.
