Copper Mountain Announces New Experts-Only Lift

The new lift will access open bowls, steep chutes, and gladed trails. Copper Mountain map.

The newly announced Tucker Mountain lift will open terrain previously only accessible by snowcat or by a lengthy hike. 

Per Copper Mountain:

"Starting during the 2019-20 season, the Tucker Mountain lift, a three-person fixed grip, will unlock access to 273 acres of expert terrain every day of the week. The new lift will run from the bottom of the Blackjack chair to the top of The Taco chute and will be complemented with a ski patrol warming hut and new restroom facilities at the base of the Mountain Chief chair in Copper Bowl."

The lift is part of Copper's $100 million capital investment plan which also includes a new mid-mountain lodge and terrain park.

This growth comes on the heels of Arapahoe Basin's expansion into the Beavers & Steep Gullies area, a move which increased their lift-accessed terrain by nearly 500 acres.
