Celebrate Independence Day by getting a tan...on the slopes. These ski resorts offer the perfect excuse to head to the mountains for holiday festivities, great lodging deals, and a weekend of sunny skiing.
Copper Mountain will open to the public for the winter season Friday, Nov. 5 offering 2,300 vertical feet of top-to-bottom skiing and riding, nearly 60 acres of terrain and 20 inches of man-made and natural snow.
An additional 125 acres of terrain opened up briefly at Vail on Friday morning giving skiers fresh tracks in deep powder and the most skiable terrain in North America to date this season. Take a look for yourself!
