Catch the End of Ski Season

Copper Mountain's ski season is unmatched for those looking to carve on some of Colorado's finest slopes. As the season draws to a close, the mountain becomes a frenzy of activity, offering not just excellent skiing conditions but also special events that celebrate the end of winter. From exhilarating slope-side competitions to music festivals that echo through the mountains, these moments are designed to make the final runs as memorable as the first.

There is still plenty of time left to get to Copper Mountain with ski season still lasting for a couple of months but you gotta get here fast while the conditions are still ideal. 

Copper Mountain Spring Events

As incredible as winter and ski season are in Copper Mountain, the spring is just as amazing with so much activity and anticipation of summer. The warmer weather brings with it opportunities to explore the outdoors in a different light. Spring at Copper Mountain is marked by the Sunsation festival, a weekend of live music, pond skimming contests, and an all-out party to celebrate the end of ski season and welcoming of warmer weather.

Spring is also great for hikes as we see the snow melt and wildflowers start to bloom on Copper Mountain. The mountains really come alive with the flora and fauna of the area so you can get out and see it before the summer crowds arrive. It's a perfect time for families, friends, and solo adventurers to experience the mountain’s natural beauty. 

Activities off the Slopes

The appeal of Copper Mountain doesn’t just lie with skiers or snowboarders; the area is brimming with activities for every type of traveler. As winter transitions to spring, explore the snow-covered trails on a snowshoeing expedition or feel the thrill of snow tubing down specially crafted lanes. With the arrival of spring, the mountain and its surroundings offer hiking, biking, and zip-lining, providing endless adventures against the backdrop of Colorado’s breathtaking landscapes.
