COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. — October 8, 2015 – Just in time for winter season, Copper Mountain complements its beginner terrain-based teaching offerings with the return of Ski and Ride School University. Ski and Ride U offers newbies a hassle-free way to give skiing or snowboarding a try, and provides plenty of incentive to stay with the sport.  

For $199 the package includes: three ski or snowboard lessons, lift tickets, equipment rentals, close-in parking, and lunch. Upon graduation and completion of the third lesson, Copper will toss in a free season pass so guests can continue to progress for remainder of the 2015/2016 winter season. Additionally after graduation, guests will also receive 50 percent off their 2016/2017 Copper Mountain Season Pass.  

While enrolled in Ski and Ride School U, guests will take advantage of Copper’s newly-created terrain-based teaching area located in Green Acres, a small learning area between Center and East Village. This non-intimidating area highlights entry-level man made features, such as banked turns and a mild mini-pipe, teamed with progressive teaching principles allowing beginners to explore various snow sliding sensations while the mountain and gravity do all the work. 

Guests must be 18 years or older and completely new to the sports of skiing and snowboarding to participate and the third lesson must be completed on or before April 10, 2016 to be eligible for the complimentary 2015/2016 Copper Mountain Season Pass and discounted 2016/2017 Season Pass. Ski and Ride University lessons will not be available between the dates of December 27, 2015 and January 3, 2016. The product must be purchased in person at Copper Mountain Guest Services or the Mountain Sports Sales Center located in the Copper One Building in Copper’s Center Village. Limited quantities are available, so avoid disappointment and purchase now. For more information on Copper’s Ski and Ride U visit
