We are keen skiers from New Zealand and with an average season last year felt that we needed more snow contact. Our ski passes allowed us to ski for free at Copper..as long as we booked our accommodation through a particular company.
The beauty of the place! What a terrific resort. The Mill Club was so flash!
The snow was gorgeous and even though it was MLK weekend, the crowds were not too bad, compared to NZ standards. However the regulars were all 'complaining' about the lack of snow - certainly enough for us wide eyed kiwis who all thought it heavenly.
I had an enjoyable morning skiing with my 13 year of son through the trees, watching squirrels.
We thought we would all be solid blue run participants but the sheer size and width of the runs soon allowed us to get really good at the black runs.
The terrain park was enormous. Both kids had sessions at Woodward with mornings inside the barn on the trampolines then afternoons on the park and pipes.
We skied every day for six days. The apres ski was virtually non existent but we were so worn out that it didn't matter, enjoying early and quiet nights instead.
A session on the tubing hill was a blast and further exercise!
We went to Frisco on the free bus for supplies. A great service offered as well as the buses taking you from village to village.
I highly recommend the Secret Pass which allows you to jump the queue. Not perhaps for the midweek days but it was handy for MLK weekend.
Every member of staff working at the resort were friendly...especially the tubing guys. The Woodward coaches skilled and keen.
I really hope we get to return.....next year!
