Let's face it: Colorado has had a great winter. While much of the midwest and back East have been slammed with bone-chilling temperatures and snow storms, Denver has had it good. This great city of mine has enjoyed a relatively mild winter while our mountains have been hit with plenty of pow...I mean, it's the best of both worlds, right?

I didn't want to jinx our season but I was pleasantly surprised when we skied Copper Mountain in the early-season and had such fantastic conditions. I figured there was no way to keep up this great level of snow, right? Wrong! And it just keeps coming.
Which is why Copper's ski season has been extended!!! The resort was supposed to close on Sunday, April 20 but now they will be open for one additional weekend on Friday, April 25 through Sunday, April 27. Which means if you're a Copper Passholder, your pass is still valid. If you have remaining days on your four-pack, get on up there. And if you have a Snow Day Pass and they receive over 4 inches of snow, you can use your pass. If not, pick up a discounted $40 lift ticket (be sure to bring your pass with you).
Oh, and if you have any 13/14 coupons? They will be honored through April 27.
Best news of all? Even if you don't have any of the above, Copper is offering discounted lift tickets when you buy your lift ticket online!
"We decided to stay open longer because we have received over 320 inches of snow this season," says Copper Mountain's Stephanie Sweeney. "With more snow in the forecast, staying open longer is our way of rewarding out guests and passholders."
Here's to a fantastic way to end an already rewarding season!
