Inside the Barn, synthetic snow surfaces will be replaced with hard surfaces for wheels. This not only includes skateboards, bikes and inline, but also the park skis and park snowboards which are specially designed with wheels for non-snow surfaces. Cross training of action sports couldn’t be any easier with the easy transition as you work your way from the Barn to the slopes at Copper Mountain.
