Copper Mountain is encouraging folks to plan their vacation and book the trip now. Early season deals are available. The first lodging deal gets you the fourth night free, if you book three nights. The last two nights are free if you book for six nights. The deal includes the VIP Beeline Advantage Lift ticket, and kids under 12 ski and ride for free with the purchase of every adult lift ticket.

There are some date restrictions. The deal is good for the majority of the season but you must book by Nov. 30. David Roth with Copper says, "We want to put our best offer out there right away so people don't have to wait around to book."

A second package must be booked by Oct. 31. This deal gets you up to $25 per day ($100 maximum) to spend at Copper on your snow day visit. It includes free food, free rentals, or free daycare. Restrictions include that the deal is per reservation and not per person.

Copper Mountain is scheduled to open for the season Friday, Nov. 6. Season passes are still on sale. Copper Mountain is 75 miles from the Denver area and is traditionally known for having the first superpipe open in the United States. It also will host the USASA National Championships in early April.
