Copper Mountain Extends Ski Season to May

Copper Mountain Resort announced a ski season extension into May for the second consecutive year, citing consistent snowfall and a strong base depth

In an April 15 news release, Copper Mountain officials said the resort will offer skiing in May “as long as conditions allow” but did not provide an official closing date. Last year, Copper extended its winter operations to May 7, marking the longest season at the resort in 25 years

For its final weeks this year, the resort plans to operate the American Eagle, Excelerator, Super Bee and Storm King lifts, and associated trails after the annual Sunsation celebration concludes on April 28. The event is set to feature free live musical performances and the Slush Rush, a unique team relay event. The event typically serves as the resort’s closing weekend celebration. 

The Superpipe and hike park in the base area will also be open post April 28, and beginner terrain will still be available in the Green Acres area. During this time, guest services, retail and rentals will operate exclusively out of Center Village.

For the rest of the season, Copper is offering $99 lift tickets and 40% off friends and family passes, which could mean ticket prices as low as $60.

In addition to Copper’s Sunsation weekend celebration, the resort is hosting a variety of other spring activities. On Thursday, April 18, the resort will host a Lleky Hot Laps event, inviting women to join in a community park meetup in Peace Park. Lift tickets are required, and all ability levels are encouraged to attend. Saturday, April 20, marks the Copper Live event along with the final uphill race of the Mammut Uphill Race Series.
