Copper Mountain Ski Area Starts Producing Snow

October 6, 2015

Copper Mountain became first ski area to start snowmaking operations for the upcoming winter season, putting the mountain on track for a November 6 opening.

"Definitely going to use those snow guns as much as we can," said the resort's Morgan Whitehouse. "Also hoping Mother Nature helps out a little bit."

Real snow could hit mountain as soon as Tuesday night. Other ski areas are still waiting for the weather to cool off enough for snowmaking.
