So, how busy will it be and is it worth waiting in line if we only get a few runs. Also, will there be only one lift open that day?

Copper generally has the American Eagle and the Excelerator open their first weekend. From there the American Flyer and Super Bee are generally the next lifts they try to get open. If we get a couple of more good snowfalls before opening day, it's possible they could open with all four of those lifts running.

The American Eagle is the base lift and the Excelerator is the quad that services the terrain up above the American Eagle. It's the top of that side (east) of the mountain. The six pack (Superbee) runs from the other base area to the same top out as the Excelerator.

I might be. Waiting to see what this warm up is going to do to the snow pack. I'd like to go back to Butler Gulch or some other back country spot, but the weather may settle the snow pack too much. If that's the case, I'll probably work on the house, ho hum...

i just read that they will have 3 runs and 3 lifts. that's probably the eagle, excelerator and the superbee. pretty standard fare, but way better than what a-basin has had lately.

Usually they open American Flyer before the Bee, but either way that is a pretty good start. I think the Bee would be a better one to have as it offers a much longer run top to bottom.
