Copper Mountain, and its parent company, POWDR, announced today that guests will continue to benefit from Copper’s US$100 million multi-year transformation in the 2019-20 season.
“I’m thrilled to announce Copper’s newest Tucker Mountain chairlift allowing more skiers and riders to access Copper’s unique high alpine terrain.” said Dustin Lyman, president and general manager of Copper Mountain Resort. “At the same time, we will begin construction on a new mid-mountain lodge to replace Solitude Station and craft the designs for the Woodward Peace Park in partnership with Danny Davis, a US Snowboard Olympian and X Games gold medalist. This is all complementary to our other recent additions, including the American Flyer and American Eagle lifts, the Rocky Mountain Coaster, Koko’s, Downhill Duke’s and more.”
Starting during the 2019-20 season, the Tucker Mountain lift, a three-person fixed grip, will unlock access to 273 acres of expert terrain every day of the week. The lift will rise over 1100 vertical feet, reaching 12 200 feet in elevation and allowing more skiers and riders to enjoy steep chutes and gladed trails. Previously this terrain was only accessible via snowcat service on weather-permitting weekend days. The new lift will run from the bottom of the Blackjack chair to the top of The Taco chute and will be complemented with a ski patrol warming hut and new restroom facilities at the base of the mountain chief chair in Copper Bowl.
