Today, May 8, Copper Mountain welcomes 11 inches of fresh powder and 14 inches collectively from the May storm. The extended season has been supreme, with bountiful snowfall and sunshine throughout the month. Who would’ve thought May could bring such a hefty dumping??

Copper extended its season for two additional weeks, with its new closing date set for Sunday, May 12, allowing more time to enjoy the near-perfect conditions. A May 12 closing ties Copper for the latest the resort has ever stayed open. The only other May 12 closure occurred 30 years ago during the 95/96 season.

As of Monday, May 6, skiing and riding operations are based solely out of Center Village, with access to the mountain via the American Eagle lift. Additionally, Copper has four terrain parks open, including a hike park with rail features at the top of American Eagle, access to the 22-foot Superpipe, a cross course adjacent to the top of the superpipe, and rail and jump features located below the base of the superpipe. Parking is free in all interior lots, excluding Ten Mile. Food and Beverage services are available at Jack’s and Starbucks. Additionally, Uphill Route 1 remains open to Aerie, and Guest Services continue to operate out of Center Village.
