Woodward Copper Summer Camps Not Slowing Down Because of Virus
Even with the difficulties of the novel coronavirus, and despite this year’s decrease in snow from winter 2018-19, Woodward Copper at Copper Mountain Resort is offering a summertime on-mountain terrain park that rivals last year’s.
Although the acreage and features of this summer’s Central Park are the same as last year’s Pipeline Park, several elements of the summer ski and snowboard experience are different in the age of COVID-19.
One-third of the number of skiers and riders are on snow, for a total of 50 participants per day this summer compared with 150 per day last year. And due to virus precautions, Woodward has taken a regional approach in terms of participants and visiting pros. Rather than pro riders coming in from across the country for a weeklong camp, Woodward has Summit County-based pros such as Torstein Horgmo and Chad Otterstrom hit the park.
