Copper’s Race Training season is upon us and will begin their on-snow training this Saturday, October 23. As you can see from the attached pictures and video link below, Copperopolis trail, the main early season race training venue at Copper, is primed and ready to go for all the race teams and groups that have traditionally come to Copper for early season race training. Don’t worry – only 2 short weeks until everybody can shred Copper Mountain.

Copper opens for the winter on Friday, Nov. 5, in only 2 short weeks, and the Lift Off, presented by Sprint, line-up and schedule of events has been announced. Some of the opening weekend festival highlights include:
