Happy Holidays from Copper,

Whether you are ultra-prepared or a procrastinator, you can start or finish your holiday shopping in the many unique shops in the Village at Copper.

Coca-Cola Tubing Hill opens on Dec. 4
Just plain fun. Kick off your skis or snowboard, and slide down the mountain in a different way. The Coca-Cola Tubing Hill is located in the East Village at the base of the Super Bee lift. Copper’s Tubing Hill is divided into five lanes, giving each guest the freedom to enjoy the tubing hill at their own pace. Dress warm and be prepared for a blast, we’ll provide the rest. Reservations are highly recommended, as spots fill up fast. Just visit any Guest Services location to “Tube it up.”

• Copper’s friendly Resort Ambassadors (in turquoise jackets with question marks on them) can assist with reading the trail map kiosk in Burning Stones Plaza
• Log onto: m.coppercolorado.com from your mobile phone
• Check the monitors located throughout the resort
