Easter At Copper

Looking for something for the “big” kids out there on Easter? Copper’s got you covered, with a brand new Facebook-only Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt. So, starting around noon on Easter, April 24, Copper will post hints, photos, clues, etc. on our Facebook Fan Page of where the roughly five to ten eggs are hidden on the big rock (aka the mountain). Guests will use these clues to find eggs with great prizes in them, including a Copper Mountain 2011-12 Four Pack, a brand new pair of Icelantic Skis, a couple of snowboards, a couple of Woodward at Copper One Hit Wonder Sessions and much more. Once you find one of the eggs, open it up to find out how to redeem your prize. Happy hunting!


Fiesta Giveaway!

It’s also time for someone to have their life changed forever. That’s right; we will be giving away the Snow Day Fiesta to one lucky guest. We’ll even fill up the gas tank! For your last chance to enter to win the Fiesta, log-on to Facebook, “Like” Copper Mountain and then head into the ‘Your Snow Day’ tab and click where it says, “Thanks we ‘Like’ you too. Click here to enter to win.” Fill out the form and you are entered to win! Do not need to be present to win the Fiesta! Restrictions apply.


World Record Attempt

It’s time to break out those swimsuits and sunglasses because we are going to be working on our tan at this fiesta. But safety first, as we will be trying to break the world record for the most people to apply sunscreen at the same time. Just come on over to Burning Stones Plaza between 10 a.m. and about 3:45 p.m., apply some Zinka sunscreen, have your picture taken and share it with all of your friends on Facebook. It really is that easy!


The Swinger’s Pass

Copper Mountain here to end mountain monogamy, so come get some. There’s no question of loyalty here, it’s just a day riding a mountain with easier access, free parking and fewer crowds. The Swinger’s Pass has been re-activated for the remainder of the 2010-11 season, so just grab your season pass from that “other” mountain, sneak over to Copper and pick up the Swinger’s Pass…one day at Copper for only $39, for the remainder of the season.
