It's a rare opportunity to ski or ride a mountain as well-balanced as Copper. Have fun with the entire family on the American Flyer, with long, easy runs to get comfortable on the snow and find your ski legs.

After warming up for a bit, hop on the American Eagle for some intermediate runs, some of which provide slow zones for families to feel comfortable trying harder terrain.

The trails for skiers and boarders at advanced and expert skill levels include the moguls off Alpine Lift, the wide-open bowls of Union Meadows, and the free snowcat access to Tucker Mountain, where backcountry access is available without the arduous hiking.

Snowboarders are given red-carpet treatment with the Catalyst Terrain Park, named one of the top ten pipes in North America by TransWorld Snowboarding Magazine. In addition, Woodward at Copper is the only indoor/outdoor facility of it's kind in the area, hosting courses and lessons for budding flyers year-round in a safe, controlled environment.
