The premier DSSC trip for 2023 at Copper Mountain Colorado is fast approaching and the good news is there are about 4 spots remaining. We have extended our sign-up deadline to December 20th so don’t miss this opportunity to “Ski the Rockies”. The La Nina winter storms are rolling into Colorado and the base is building to assure that we’ll enjoy awesome early spring skiing. If Copper Mountain is on your bucket list, join the fun with ski-in / ski-out lodging right in the heart of the base Village. A short walk and you’ll find yourself on the lifts that will take you into 2500 acres of white magic! With mellow groomers and challenging bowls there are more runs than most can tackle in 4 days. When you’re worn out and ready to unwind at the end of the day the Village is filled with bistros, restaurants and boutique shops.
