Copper Mountain opened and skiers and riders took to the slopes today when the American Eagle Chairlift started turning at 9 a.m on November 7th!
Throughout opening weekend, both American Eagle and Excelerator chairlifts and the Easy Rider surface lift will service Main Vein, Rhapsody, Ptarmigan and Easy Rider trails for top-to-bottom skiing and riding, plus Woodward Copper’s Eagle Jib Park, located off of the top of the American Eagle chairlift.
Last season, Copper Mountain launched Sherpa, the first on mountain intelligence app. This season, Copper launches Sherpa 2.0 with a new open source platform. Available for download from the iPhone store soon, guests can drop markers around the resort with their own voice for other skiers or riders or only allow a select few to hear these markers. Celebrity contributors will let you in on their favorite spots on the mountain, insider information and some of their favorite jokes to keep chairlift rides entertaining.
