Sounds great! Oh, wait a minute, I already have a season pass.
But, wait, that's a good thing, isn't it? ssh, as long as I'm 45+, can I come along anyway?
Glad that you are enjoying your new job, LM. BTW, did I see a write up on your fitness company in the Copper Cable
a while back? Oh, and Union Creek a ghost town? It never is when I'm taking my kid to ski school. Man, what a zoo! There are only three lifts that I try very hard to avoid between the hours of 10:30 - 2:00 and two of them are Flyer and High Point. The third is Kokomo, but I only ski that lift when my daughter makes me. I am always amazed at the beginners who battle the crowd on Kokomo while Lumberjack runs half-empty. But I don't complain on those days when I'm spending the day with my daughter cruising Roundabout.
I may only be a regular at Copper for the last few years, but I have been skiing Copper since the first year it opened. IMO, Copper is a far better mountain now than it was in '72.
One of my close friends directs Copper's lift operators. I gather that this year's crop, a large number coming from Brazil and other parts of South America, has been a bit of more a challenge to manage. There are always a few seem to be quite shocked to find out that running a lift is actually work, and they're not getting paid to go ski all day.
I have other issues with iwest as a management company, but, for day to day operations, and by that I mean the day to day ski experience, I still think Copper is the best of Summit County. (OK, A-Basin is right up there too).
