2020/21 Winter Season Update

Dear Copper Community, 
There have already been a few dustings of snow on the peaks at Copper Mountain, which means it won’t be long before we can get back to doing what we love – skiing and riding! Now more than ever, we look forward to reconnecting on the slopes.   

Funds for FIRC Help Keep the Community Alive

Our Summit County community has been hit hard by COVID-19 in the past 6 months. Two-thirds of our mountain community has been financially impacted by the virus. Many residents here depend on the ski industry in order to make a living and with the March shutdown of Colorado ski areas that ended the winter ski season, many in our community were left unable to pay bills and provide basic needs for themselves and their families.

Unusual Circumstance, Unforgettable Pomp

The coronavirus has prompted people to take a different approach to life. And in wanting to celebrate and acknowledge life’s monumental moments, folks have had to get creative and, in many cases, have done so with great success.
When the 2020 senior class of Peak School high school in Summit County, CO was evaluating their options for holding graduation, the Head of School, Travis Aldrich, reached out to Copper Mountain GM Dustin Lyman with an idea for a chairlift commencement.

Eyes without a Face

At Copper, we host events that challenge, inspire and excite every type of athlete, all season long, from US Ski Team training in the fall to Red Bull Slopesoakers pond skim in the spring. This spring, when we closed early for the 2019/20 season with a calendar full of events and competitions that had to be cancelled, we were left with a lot of event promotional items.

Using her Head

Noni Love, Copper’s manager of leisure sales, dove headfirst into helping others during the COVID-19 crisis. Along with volunteering with a nearby resource center to put together food for families in need, Love has been making headbands for doctors and nurses at her local hospital. The headbands have a button on either side, and masks are meant to go over the buttons instead of behind their ears to make wearing them more comfortable.
