Full review

They used to call Copper "the skiers mountain" but Copper has gone almost totally snowboarder terrain. Every year they eat up more valuable ski terrain and turn it over to snowboard single use/terrain park amusement park. I was riding the lift with some women who have skied Copper for years also and they were talking about how Copper seems not to care about skiers at all anymore. Where are the new lifts at Union Creek for beginners? Where is the grooming? Why are so many of their slopes icy and crowded with weird shaped moguls? Where are the new runs? Where is the glade skiing? Areas like Beaver Creek, Vail, Snowmass, Aspen Highlands love skiers and are constantly doing what they can to keep skiers happy and coming back. Maybe Coppers new owners will care more about taking care of skiers than just selling thousands of season passes to Front Range snowboarders and turning even their base area into a snowboard park/fast food/shedder bar???
