Copper Mountain "Where the skiers ski!" That's the slogan Coppers' executives and their crack public relations team have come up with just for skiers like you who have never skied here before. If you're from the east coast ski states, then you'll be used to the wind blown concrete hard blue tinted ice at Copper. They also put up black diamond signs on blue diamond runs. Lousy Bowl skiing and a total bummer every time I've gone there. Why did I keep going back you ask? Because I kept hearing how good it was. I guess I'm a glutton for punishment.
