Don’t let the melted snow put a stop to your mountain adventure at Copper Mountain. Summer is the perfect time to buckle in and point your feet down hill on one of North America’s longest mountain coasters. The Rocky Mountain Coaster will quickly become your new gateway to thrills at Copper no matter what the season.

You skied and boarded all season long while the fluffy white stuff covered the mountain. Now that you’ve packed up your powder jackets and long underwear it’s time to experience Copper’s summertime playground. Summer’s balmy 70 degree daily temps will lure you to escape the city’s heat and bustle to enjoy a cascade of exciting activities on the mountain.

When I walked in to have lunch this past season, I saw a sign that listed the gluten-free and vegetarian options in Jack’s at the base of the American Eagle. Even the ski resorts are trying to cater to those eaters! Whether you’ve chosen to eat this way or your body feels better if you do, have no fear—even Copper Mountain has some restaurants with offerings you can choose from. As the ski season comes to a close, you’re probably wondering if they’re open during the summer.

No matter how good or disappointing the winter season, no matter how much snow we got, no matter how often I got on the mountain, it’s never enough. I’m never ready for the lifts to stop spinning and to hang up my skis for the summer. I actually get sort of panicky as closing day approaches and I’m pretty sure I’m not alone. But on the bright side, as soon as lifts close, the anticipation for the next winter season begins. And next season is going to be even better here at Copper.
Woodward Copper Summer Camp begins in just over a month so that means that the Pipeline summer terrain park build has begun. With all the snow we received this winter, the crew has a ton to work with. This pile is already over 80 feet tall! We think it's safe to say this will be one of the best summer terrain parks Woodward Copper Summer Camp has ever seen.

Springtime in the Rockies has few constants when it comes to the weather report but bountiful guarantees when it comes to mountain living. Goggle tans, lightened lift lines, extended apres’, and a melting of good times highlight just some of the expected pleasures of the blossoming climate and culture. Summer is right around the corner but don’t forget to savor the season while checking out Copper Mountain’s best drinks on and off the hill.

Copper Mountain’s raucous end-of-season celebration is always one for the books. This year the jam-packed Rocky Mountain festival closes out the 2018-19 ski season (and, boy, what a season it was!) April 20 and 21 with bands, brews, the famous Red Bull Slopesoakers competition and a Retro Shred-a-Thon charity ski.
