Copper Mountain in Colorado, US, has submitted plans to the US Forest Service that propose expanding its snowmaking system in order to cover a further 86 acres of runs.

The area concerned covers six watersheds: Formidable Basin, Loverly Basin, Roundabout Basin, Union Gulch, West Tenmile Creek and Wheeler Creek.

The plans are subject to an environmental assessment and can be commented on by members of the public. Approval would see work beginning as early as this coming spring.

The resort also wants to create 24 miles of mountain biking trails and 14 miles of hiking trails for summer recreation.
