Winter Park/ Copper Pass

This next season I am going to get Loveland and Winter park/MJ pass. Copper is another 50$ or so but I never have been so I don't know anything about there. I really don't see myself driving past Loveland to go to Copper ever? What's your opinion on Copper?

Worth the extra 50 bucks that's for sure. Backside has drops ranging from 5 to 50 feet, frontside has tree runs, 30 minute park lap, some bowls that cut into the slackcountry then pop you back out on the front, world class superpipe, and is only super crowded on super busy weekends.

Absolitely worth the $50 extra! the superpipe alone will make it well worth it.. well worth the extra drive as well.

I agree. Copper is pretty fun and is a nice alternative choice to Winterpark. Also, along with the LL pass, you'll have three distinct snow zones in the Front Range. I've seen plenty of times where one of those ski areas gets the lion's share of the snow, while the others get very little to completely skunked.

Cool thanks for the info. I ended up getting both WP and Copper. Now they just need to put Loveland passes back for sale and I'll be set.

I already have the Echo Mountain pass (living 20 minutes away I can't pass it up @ $150) and will definitely be grabbing the Loveland pass. Not sure if I'm renewing my Five Mountain or not.
