Copper Mountain is First in the Nation to Make Snow
Copper Mountain has become the first ski resort in the nation to start making snow for the upcoming ski season. It doesn't feel like winter yet - but it is coming.
With temperatures dropping below 30 degrees last week in the high country, the snow machines were fired up. Copper Mountain is scheduled to open on November 6th with an opening day pep rally featuring Olympians Lindsey Vonn and Mikaela Shiffrin.
According to Sno Country, the U.S. Ski Team will train at the U.S. Ski Team Speed Center at Copper and snowmaking will continue as conditions permit.
