Copper’s St. Patty’s Day Celebration This Saturday!

Time to ponder your selection of green outfits as St. Patty’s day is Saturday.  Boo the cheaters who show but a strip of green on the rim of their Fruit of the Loom!  Copper Mountain in Colorado, one of the U.S. Ski Team’s preferred training mountains, is showing the true spirit of St. Patrick’s day with bagpipers and "O’Fuego".  Bagpipers is self-explanatory, but the "O’Fuego" theme?  Well, Copper will be literally on fire, with bonfires scattered throughout the village to keep children’s hands toasty warm and fireworks over the mountain.

Drink specials will be the norm to go with authentic Irish fare, music from bagpipers and a free concert from the Lipbone Redding Band, the Irish version of the hip-hop beat-boxer.  An artist that has to be seen, rather than simply described. 

To make your St. Patrick’s weekend complete, Copper has a big deals on lodging.  As the Irish say, "Éirinn go Brách!"  Ireland forever, indeed.
