COPPER MOUNTAIN, CO — MARCH 21, 2022
This month’s consistent snowstorms have brought great re-fills to our favorite mountains. But as we cross into spring, one way or another, things will start warming up.
Copper Mountain has announced its event lineup to take us through the end of the Winter Season.
April 16 — Red Bull Jump & Freeze
Skies and riders are encouraged to dress in exciting outfits for a classic pond-skim across icy cold water, in front of a crowd of spectators. Those ages 18 and up can register for free. You can sign up here.
April 22-24 — Sunsation (Closing Weekend)
The season’s closing weekend will feature live music acts:
Friday — The American Authors at 5 p.m.
Saturday — Letters to Cleo at 5 p.m.
Sunday will feature a kind of scavenger hunt to win a new set of Nokian Tires. You’ll need to follow clues from the Copper Mountain Instagram story to locate a green tire, hidden somewhere on the mountain.
10 Barrel Hella Hectic
A kind of cross-style course, leading onto a pond skim in the center village. Qualifiers take place on April 22nd. Finals are on April 23rd.
Riders 18 and up can participate for free. You just need to sign up in advance. Registration is not yet open but will be available here.
