I think the stats of a mountain dont do it justice. The layout of a mountain is very important. My favorite mountain ive skied is copper. The union peak, union meadows, timberline loop you can ski all day long and not get bored. Union meadows is literally like 2 square miles (edit: actually id estimate it at closer to 4) of untouched routes where you can always find fresh powder. Its so asthetic being at such high altitude where the trees are nice and thin. Copper just has
Such a gorgeous layout, it doesnt make sense why they dont get the numbers breck keystone and vail pull in. I have heard on a busy day at breck you can wait in lift lines for half an hour or more. The longest ive ever waited in line at copper is about 5 minutes. It literally never gets that bad at copper. Why is copper still such an insider secret? I think if they can demolish all the old condos on the east side of the center village and continue/expand the swiss alpine village theme of the newer condos on the west side of the center village it will be just as pretty and scenic as any modern resort base.
Its such a great mountain I dont understand why development is so slow there. If they tore down all the pre 1990s condos and built new condos to connect center village all the way to east village, there would be a hoard of rich jet setters buying real estate and time shares in copper. Theres so much potential, especially considering the altitude would allow copper to stay open till june if the deep state government assholes would stop playing favorites with lower altitude resorts that turn to slushy mud after march. Resorts should be allowed to stay open as late as their snow coverage allows. The rich assholes in vail and aspen and park city can cry me a river about how their low altitude resorts where they own condos melt like butter once april comes around.
