Copper Mountain, CO…June 2, 2010…Woodward at Copper, deep in the heart of the Colorado Rockies, is the first indoor/outdoor snowboard and ski camp on the planet with a focus on terrain park and pipe progression. The 20,000 sq. ft. Woodward at Copper Barn gives campers access to Snowflex® jumps, foam pits, a spring floor, fly-bed trampolines and indoor skateboard features. Summer Camps also include access to skiing/riding on-snow in Copper’s summer terrain park.
The Woodward at Copper staff has been incredibly busy getting everything ready for summer camps. The seasonal staff is arriving daily and the summer vibe is really starting to flow around Copper. The on-hill staff reports there is more snow than last summer and Woodward at Copper’s summer terrain park (for campers only) is going to be amazing, but then again, when is riding in the summer not fun? In addition, the area’s only go-kart track is nearly ready for racers, the mini-golf course is almost all set for duffers, and West Lake is ice-free for all those budding boat enthusiasts. See you at camp soon!
A typical day during a Woodward at Copper summer camp will include skiing/riding on-snow in Copper’s summer terrain park in the morning, Barn sessions in the afternoon and evening, and many additional recreational activities including skate park tours, go-karts, create-a-skate, music, rock climbing, hiking and much more. Campers will live and eat at Copper’s EDGE building, with only 2 campers per room sharing a bathroom, located right at the base of the mountain.
Return of the Airbag!
Don’t be left out when all your friends are stomping their fresh new tricks. Woodward at Copper once again has its very own airbag on the summer snow, completing the next step in the progression. Take off on real snow and land softly on more than 14,000 cubic feet of cushioning. NOTE: The Airbag will not be available for all sessions.

Woodward at Copper is NOT just for kids!
