Garrett Russell handplants over a tube at Copper Mountain, Colorado. While most people in Summit County are mountain biking or hiking through green forests, Copper keeps the winter alive with public sessions every weekend and private on-snow camps during June and July. Plus, a higher than average snowfall in Colorado this winter allowed the camp to have more features than ever before and operate a surface lift for the first time in the camp's existence.
