COPPER MOUNTAIN — Mother Nature will dish up a little bit of everything for the last week of skiing at Copper Mountain, including a good dose of spring powder early in the week, then warmer temps and sunshine for the Sunsation festivities on closing day.
If you're headed up during the first half of the week, be ready for winter-like conditions. The National Weather Service says a strong storm, with cold air from the Arctic, will fuel heavy snow from Monday night through Wednesday, so wax up your boards and get ready for one last powder session. Up to a foot of snow could fall until the storm winds down Wednesday evening.
By late in the week, sunshine returns to the Colorado high country, and classic spring skiing conditions should prevail through closing day. April has already delivered 11 inches of snow (180 inches total for the season). Check out the Copper Mountain snow report for all the details.
Here's a short Copper Mountain to-do list:
- While you're here, make sure you reserve your Copper Mountain season pass for next winter with a $49 downpayment.
- Check out the new Copper Mountain digital media lab, where you can get pros to help you edit your last ski video of the season.
- Don't miss the Sunsation headliners Ozomatli, taking the stage at the Burning Stones Plaza Sunday afternoon.
- Summer skiing? You bet, with Woodward at Copper summer on-snow and Woodward Barn training sessions.
- Don't forget to check road conditions and traffic updates on the new I-70 mobile app. Remember, eastbound traffic is being routed around the Twin Tunnels for the rest of the spring and summer as CDOT adds a third tunnel lane for skiers headed back to Denver.
