Colorado Snow Conditions: Copper Mountain


Friday we decided to head over to Copper and check out the scene, damn was it Saturday we thought? Tons of vacationers and holiday traffic made it feel almost like the weekend. With 4" fresh the previous day we figured we could find some hidden powder stashes in the trees, the only good stuff we found was off the T-Bar lift. With the masses of people over on the American Flyer side of the mountain we did a few laps on the Super Bee, snow was OK up top but hella icy down at the bottom. This side of Copper tends to be less crowded with slightly harder terrain. We broke for lunch at Endo's Cafe and made our way to the park. I was disappointed to see the same features in the pre-season park. Copper needs to change this crap up once in a while, keep it fresh! By mid-day the snow around the mountain and park started to loosen up, all on top of a 36" mid-mountain base. Think Snow!
