Copper has announced planned terrain openings for this weekend. Press release below:

Copper Mountain is pleased to open one week ahead of its scheduled opening date – welcoming skiers and riders tomorrow Friday, Nov. 7.  Guests will enjoy terrain off the American Eagle lift as well as Opening Weekend specials throughout the Village at Copper.

For Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 8 and 9, Copper will also open the Excelerator lift servicing intermediate terrain on Ptarmigan trail.

All lifts will open at 9 a.m., seven days a week until Dec. 19, to give Copper’s on-hill teams more time to prepare the snow for the day ahead. Race training will take place from 6 – 9 a.m. daily on Main Vein trail.
