Whether winter or summer, Copper Mountain activities and programs will keep you busy, happy and relaxed at the same time. The ski resort operates well-run camps for kids by age and skill level. Trailblazers (ages 3 to 5), Scooters (ages 4 to 12) and Choppers (8 to 18) help participants gain confidence and skills while tackling fears and bad habits to enable an appreciation for snow sports and adventure within a safe environment. For parents and children, the Kids’ Night Out (KNO) program is a three-hour childcare service where kids can watch movies, play games (group, board or interactive videos like Wii) while parents get some well-deserved together time. Among the many other Copper Mountain activities, families can ski with a Dillon ranger. This one-hour free session is a history tour that also introduces participants to National Forest wildlife, plants and geography. Also free, mountain ambassadors lead snowshoeing tours for guests of all abilities. As it’s noted popularly, if you can walk, you can snowshoe. And are you getting the concept of free?
