When we reviewed Woodward at Copper a while back, we received this interesting information form David Roth of Copper Mountain, CO – Copper Mountain, the home of the Snow Day – www.coppercolorado.com.

Who doesn’t want to be “the cool” grandparent or parent? Woodward at Copper is the perfect way to bridge the generation gap; father and daughter; mom and son can enjoy this experience together and find some common ground (or air) to bring back home.  Dad, it’s time for our Winter Camp Day…learn all the cool tricks, styles and more, not to mention the latest youth vernacular.  After killing it on the hill, mom and dad are bound to impress at après by properly using words like switch, steez and huck.

Baby boomers do not want to feel left behind in any aspect of their lives, especially in regards to the sports of skiing and snowboarding, and in particular, they would love to be able to get an introduction into freestyle terrain without the consequences of making a mistake on hard-pack snow – they want to come to work on Monday with the best story, not a cast on their arm. This is where the safer, more controlled environment of Woodward at Copper comes into the equation. In the 19,400 sq ft facility, aptly named The Barn because that is exactly what it looks like, there is a multitude of tools to help guests progress in a safer, more controlled environment, such as: foam pits, flybed grade trampolines, pro coaches, harnesses, an artificial snow surface called Snowflex, and much more. Individuals can get an introduction into freestyle skiing or boarding with a Camp Day, focusing for a full day on the indoor features in The Barn and, in the winter, Copper’s nationally recognized on-mountain park and pipe features.

Check out the magic at www.woodwardatcopper.com. Perhaps we boomers should be looking for camps to attend this summer!
