This season, Copper Mountain Ski Resort is offering skiers and snowboarders with more opportunities then ever to take their skill level up a notch. Whether you're looking to finally learn to ski bumps, take a short but sweet lesson to hone your skills, or spend some time in a female bonding session (for women only--sorry guys), Copper has something for everyone. And let's not forget Woodward at Copper, where skiers and snowboarders alike can learn cool tricks in the safety of a controlled environment.
Always wanted to learn to ski moguls? Bump Busters is designed to help you master your mogul skiing technique. Copper will offer two-day clinics three times this season for intermediate to advanced skiers. Packages begin at $180. Find out more at Copper's website.
Adult Ski & Ride Group Lessons
Looking to hone your skills, but don't want to spend all day in a lesson? Adult Ski & Ride Group lessons, for skiers or snowboarders levels 2 and higher, are now only 3 hours long, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and start at just $75. Call 866-534-7444 for more information or visit any Guest Services location.
For ladies only, Women's Wednesdays was conceived, designed, and is taught by women to help female skiers and boarders take their skills to the next level in a fun and encouraging environment. Full day sessions meet at Center Village every Wednesday from January 9th through March 24th. Drop in fee is only $90. Check Copper's website for more information. Extend your day and try out Ladies' Night at Woodward at Copper on Wednesday nights.
Woodward at Copper
Though your teenager might try to convince you otherwise, Woodward is not just for the young; the young at heart are also welcome. Come on, admit it...you're itching to jump on a rail at the terrain park to see if you can make it look like a Warren Miller flick. Sure, you might feel a little out of place taking a lesson among a bunch of teenagers, but you're only as old as you feel. And what better place to air it out then over a foam ball pit? The Winter Camp Day is a great value and includes use of the indoor features in The Barn and Copper's on-mountain park and pipe features. A Winter Camp Day includes setting a goal for the day (i.e., "I want to learn to ski on the rails," or "I want to learn how to do a 360 spin"), and fully coached morning and afternoon sessions in The Barn working on tricks and on the snow at one of Copper's terrain parks.
