One of Copper's most exciting projects this summer is the construction of the Rocky Mountain Coaster. This alpine coaster will descend over 5,000 feet through the forest under and west of the American Flyer lift. 

We've got a crew that's been working hard to prepare to lay the track and now, the track is beginning to go in. Check it out:
