    Early season Copper

    by Almost 40 - 9th December 2010

    Pros: Good terrain and early season snow

    Cons: Parking, ug.

    After you get past the remote parking area and bus ride to the ski area, you can have some fun here. The Super B lift delivers about 2000 feet of vertical i... Full review
