Well today was the much anticipated opening day and with yesterdays snowfall just in time it turned out nice. You can always count on a good turn out when copper mountain opens for the season and today was no exception. As you can see by the picture snow making is working hard to get new terrain open and keep existing terrain open as well. With one top to bottom run open on the American Eagle spirits were high and people were having a great time.
This guy got to get out for a couple runs and boy howdy was it good to get back on skis and celebrate the start of our 2016/2017 ski season. As you can imagine the whole Carbonate crew is excited for yet another ski season to be under way.
With this being a La Nina winter expectations are for plenty of sweet powder days.
Update after being open for 8 days coverage is much improved between some natural snow fall as well as plenty of snowmaking
The super bee is also open to the public so if you want to rub elbows with some famous racers take a ride on the super bee you can’t ride the speed training center but you can ride the same lift. I was watching the other day and looks like those downhill folks are going what I like to call full send.
