As part of Copper Mountains $100 million capital investment plan the ski area announced that they will be building a new Tucker Mountain lift. The new lift will open terrain previously only accessible by snowcat or by a lengthy hike.
Official Statement From 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 lift will rise over 1,100 vertical feet, reaching 12,200 feet in elevation and allowing more skiers and riders to enjoy steep chutes and gladed trails. Previously this terrain was only accessible via snowcat service on weather-permitting weekend days. 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.
Other development at Copper Mountain includes construction of a new lodge, which will replace Solitude Station, Copper’s mid-mountain lodge, and feature convenient access from American Eagle lift to a 25,000 sq. ft. reimagined lodge experience. Construction is already underway and will continue through the 2019-20 ski season. Once complete, the new lodge will feature a full-service casual restaurant, full-service bar and lounge, private dining area, cafeteria options and 180-degree views of the vast Colorado mountain landscape.
“With all of the exciting development at Copper, now, more than ever, is a great time for the next generation of skiers, snowboarders and families to call Copper Mountain Colorado their home mountain,” said Lyman.
