After allowing them for many years Copper Mountain's new management has decided to ban peg ski bikes for very unclear reasons. They said for "safety reasons". Currently, Winter Park Resort, Arapahoe Basin, Aspen/Snowmass, Buttermilk, Telluride, Keystone, and Durango Mountain Resort allow peg ski bikes.
Progressive ski industry giants in Colorado allow peg ski bikes but not Copper?????? In my eyes this destroys their credibility as a hangout for freestyle people. If they are so concerned for safety why do they have terrain parks or host the Grand Prix? Plenty of opportunity there for people to get hurt. Peg ski bikes have never been involved in an accident at Copper that I know of.
Call or write management if you agree or disagree with this new policy.
In the meantime it looks like I will only be patronizing Colorado ski resorts that allow peg ski bikes (barring extenuating circumstances).
This is now banned at Copper Mountain:
