National Safety Month: Copper Mountain Safety Fest 2015

National Safety Week  has now become National Safety Month!  The entire month of January is being dedicated to safety on the slopes .  Many Resorts across the country participate every year to educate skiers and snowboarders about being safe, and to use common sense on the slopes. Copper Mountain is taking part and is excited to recognize and support the National Ski Area Associations’ Safety Awareness Month with Copper’s Safety Fest.
