COPPER MOUNTAIN — To prepare for its fifth anniversary season, Woodward at Copper is planning a major renovation of the 19,400-square foot action sports barn, expanding indoor and on-mountain offerings for all action sports, including BMX, freeride mountain biking and skateboarding, and digital media.
The upgrades should be complete in time for the first week of summer camps, scheduled for June 16.
Planned improvements include replacing all synthetic snow surfaces with a surface designed for wheels. The new surface boosts jumping progression beyond skis and snowboards, to include BMX, mountain bike and skateboards.
In addition, a new progressive foam pit will be added next to the current big jump line that will include a drop in platform with 2-foot and 4-foot jumps designed for development of beginner park skills. The street area will double in size allowing for full access by BMX, mountain bike, skateboards and park skis and snowboards. Renovations also will include two new viewing areas giving spectators an up-close peek at the action.
Woodward at Copper's popular summer camps will also get a lift, literally, with the planned addition of a summer chairlift providing access to the jib park.
BMX and skate program offerings will be extended outdoors, on-mountain, and include an outdoor mini-ramp for summer campers. Woodward at Copper Summer Camps can be booked immediately, with limited availability across all actions sports, including Snowboard and Ski camps, BMX and Mountain Bike Freeride camps and Digital Media camps.
Don’t want the winter season to end? It doesn’t have to; book now and save $100 for new campers when booked by Feb. 28th.
