Despite its world-class shred scene, Copper lacks the crowds common elsewhere in Summit County. For Woodward at Copper Head, Coach Rick Shimpeno says Copper’s tight-knit feel causes “many of the sessions to feel like family reunions.” Here are some of his family secrets: Start by finding Mario Land, a hidden zone filled with stumps, bumps, and pow stashes. Next, make your way to the Playground and Woodward Central parks before rolling into the Superpipe. Top up by grabbing a slice of pizza at Jack’s before hopping back on the chair. On pow days, make some slashes on the steep, rolling terrain by the A chair. For post-shred fun, snag a skate session at Woodward, drinks at Endo’s, or grub at Alpinista.
