I took comfort in the knowing, sympathetic half-smile on my ski instructor’s sunbaked face when I told him the birth of my skiing career consisted of girlfriends dropping me at the top of blue and black runs at Copper Mountain 15 years ago and giving me a “good luck, you’ve got this, just follow us” pat before vanishing downhill.

When it comes to skiing and snowboarding, powder days are what we live for. Prepare yourself for the best Colorado powder day with these tips and tricks:
As spring skiing begins so do spring conditions. While you soak up the sun, it’s important to remember that the snow surface is constantly changing due to the warming temperatures. It can be a ton of fun but you’ll want to stay alert as you make your way around the mountain. Skier safety is Copper’s number one goal! Here are things to remember:
As you may have heard, Copper is underway with plans to bring new community offerings to the resort, including at the base of the Alpine lift in the resort’s East Village, and at the Chapel and North Alpine Lots.
The proposed “Alpine Neighborhood” at the base of the Apline Lift is planned to include new construction single-family homes and townhomes and a new hotel with slopeside accommodations and dining options open to the public.

If you thought a winter vacation in the Colorado Rockies was all about skiing or snowboarding, think again. Now that Copper Mountain’s new Rocky Mountain Coaster is open, there are even more ways to enjoy the mountain – whether or not you like strapping boards to your feet.
Never been on an alpine coaster? Neither had I. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Imagine a cross between an alpine slide and a one-car rollercoaster that winds down the mountain, in and out of pine forests, along and over ski runs.

On February 11, 2018, I was invited to go snowshoeing at Copper Mountain. This event was through the newly opened Adventure Station at Copper, near Camp Hale coffee shop. My friend Scott went with me, and we were ready to summit Copper Peak—or at least snowshoe to the top.

One of the most thrilling perks (and hidden gems) at Copper Mountain is the free Tucker Mountain Snowcat. Expert skiers and riders load up in groups of 12 to catch a free ride to 273 acres of glorious high-alpine back bowls. When other resorts’ powder days have churned into crunchy bumped-out runs, Copper skiers are soaking up face-shots on Tucker, some of Colorado's best in-bounds terrain.
