Trip report Copper Mt. Colotado 3/7-3/14

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Just got back from my 1st trip to Co. Went to Copper Mt. and stayed in center village. Overall impressions are it is a great place. Really enjoyed the terrain with a great mix for everybody. Excellent lift system, well thought out mountain. This was my favorite place to be 1st thing every morning after taking up the Super Bee lift:

What a fantastic view, normally I just charge down after getting off the lift but this view just stopped me in my tracks for awhile. To those who get to be there and work there you have a nice office window.

I think I enjoyed spending time in Resolution bowl the most, great bump trails and fantastic tree skiing, powder holds well in there even with some sun and warm temps.

This was a pretty good place to be , looking back up Copper bowl to Bradleys passage:

dropping into Copper Bowl above the Mt. Chief chair in Bradleys passage was a leap of faith going over the cornice. Thought the lip was going to break off under me. Just can't find those type of steeps here in the east.

 

For a perspective top of one mt on Weds

 

and top of another mt on Friday both good just a bit different :

Friday with my daughter Cailtin at Stowe

 

Girlfriend in Jupiter Bowl :

I would say she was a low - mid intermediate skier, but she went into a lot of very tough terrain, she was pretty game for it, although the big powder bumps in Resolution bowl worked her over pretty hard, but the great spa put her back together. She got stronger as the week went on and her skiing ability took a huge jump, the mountain can make you better. Just like playing against better competition in a sport.

 

 

How can you not like this:

 Sorry for the picture quality, just a cheap camera phone, but the real memory is stored away in my head. Hope to get back next year.

IMO, the soft snow out west helps you trust  your skis and trusting your skis is the best way to improve!

Yes I would agree with that, she definitely went after it as the week went on and I could see her comfort level really go up.It will be interesting to see if the trust is there when she skis next here in the east.I will say Friday at Stowe with my daughter the conditions I think were good for here but they were in no way like Weds out in Copper.

She did not ski them at Stowe , she was on her Viva 8.0, She has not had too many opportunities here in the east to really get on the Samba's this year, she did not come to CO with me. Although she had some good powder bumps for a couple of days at the Snowbowl that she played on the Samba's and loved them. Blizzard really has some great products. I was on my One's the whole time at Copper. That really is a 1 ski traveling quiver for me.
