Family Day at Copper

by Lu Snyder

Family ski days with your little tyke can be both exhilarating and (dare I say it?) a little boring. There’s nothing quite like the thrill of seeing your youngster get a taste of the sport you love, but unless you’re a beginner skier or boarder yourself, green runs can get old, fast.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

When thinking about Copper’s Moonlight Dine and Ski, I’d envisioned something along the lines of The Night Before Christmas. You know, “the moon on the breast of the new fallen snow gave the luster of midday to objects below?”

I couldn’t have been farther off base, I realized, as I prepared to follow a guy in a blinking vest down a pitch-black run.

What Makes Copper Special

by Samantha White


Copper is special to me because most of my progression doesn’t just lie in my abilities as a snowboarder but also the way I shape my outlook on life. Whether it’s getting fresh powder turns in the middle of winter to those beautiful sunny days dialing tricks in the park, I just can’t walk away without a smile on my face.
