I just heard that the first ski resorts are opening this weekend. It's officially time to think about ski season! Last year the kids and I headed to Copper for a trip to kick-off our ski season (click here to get more details on that trip) we had a blast and loved not only the slopes--but all the off-mountain fun is a huge reason why we are headed back again this year.
When we hit the slopes at Copper I'll be testing out the new on-mountain intelligence application called Sherpa 2.0. Last season, Copper reengineered the resort smartphone app game with Sherpa. New for the 2014/2015 winter season Copper hands over the controls of Sherpa to everyone, allowing for an open-sourced mountain. Not only will guests be able to create and share their own mountain tips and favorite trails, but Copper will reward the best contributors with swag, tickets, passes and even a prized treasured spot on 2015/2016 winter trail map. Sherpa 2.0 will change how guests interact with the mountain and create a community rewarding those who help to improve the mountain experience. Learn more about Sherpa at CopperColorado.com/Sherpa.
Voted the 2013/2014 Best Use of Mobile Technology by the National Ski Areas Association, Sherpa is a great tool for families. Sherpa tells users what they’re near, where to go and what to do when they get there. It's locals only, insider information, available for the first time to everyone on the mountain. Sherpa taps into the knowledge of lifelong employees, ski patrol and local experts and makes that wisdom available to anyone with a mobile device.
In addition to testing out the Sherpa App, we'll be heading back to Woodward Copper. This space is all about flipping out. From foam pits to help kids and adults perfect tricks to an amazing assortment of trampolines, Woodward is an great reason to pick Copper for your ski holiday. It's not just for snowboarders. Woodward has thrills for skateboarders, scooters, BMX and slopestyle mountain bikers.
If you have been dragging your big kids to the mountain, this is a treat. Woodward has a new program just for teens. Woodward Copper Barn is now the hub for all teen lessons in the 2014/2015 season. Teens of any skill level, ages 13 – 18, will begin their day with Copper Ski and Ride School at The Woodward Copper Barn. For never-ever skiers and riders, this allows for a safe environment to learn on equipment and experience first sliding sensations on the new Skatelite material. For the more skilled skiers and riders, The Barn will serve a place to learn new terrain park skills before taking them out to snow.

We all know freestyle is huge with kids. Woodward now has a full-day lesson that splits time between The Woodward Copper Barn. Want to catch air with the kids? Adults can take these lessons too. Visit WoodwardCopper.com for more details.
