Copper Mountain to offer free scenic chairlift rides through summer

As it has in the past, Copper Mountain is once again offering free round-trip rides on its American Eagle Lift, located in Copper’s central village. The free rides started Monday and are scheduled to run until the end of Copper’s summer season near Labor Day.

“We just wanted to let folks know that we understand that times are tight,” said spokesman David Roth. “We wanted to make it easier for people to come and check out Copper.”

The nearly 10,000-foot-long scenic ride covers a 2,000-foot elevation change and takes riders over much of Copper’s rocky terrain. At the top of the lift, guests can explore some hiking and biking trails and check out the Solitude Barbecue. Visitors to Copper can also enjoy a variety of other paid activities from go-karts and mini-golf to bungee tramps and cycling.

The free chairlift rides are another expansion to Copper’s summer repertoire. The resort just recently opened the Woodward at Copper, an indoor/outdoor ski and snowboard camp. Read more about Woodward at Copper at
