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.
