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!
Like a precocious little sister, Beaver Creek offers much of the excellence of neighboring Vail¿just in a smaller, cuter package. "The Beav" pampers its guests with the fifth-ranked Service and eighth-ranked Grooming in the country.
Let's move beyond the cowboy image and enjoy Steamboat for what it is: a great ski resort. Readers awarded Steamboat seven gold medals, five of them for the stuff of skiers' dreams: Snow Quality, Grooming, Terrain, Lifts and Weather.
