‘Copper Mountain is such a fun mountain resort! I just love the terrain here and the tirelessly long groomers which you can just ski and ride all day long. Also, the cat skiing in the Copper Bowl is epic, along with a visit to Woodward at Copper for some ‘off snow’ progression and a tonne of fun’. Shona – Amped
