Copper Mountain Announces Holiday Sports Events
22 Nov, 2013
Celebrate the grand re-opening of the Woodward at Copper Barn and burn off that turkey dinner at Woodward Remix Friday - Sunday, Nov. 29 - Dec. 1. This grand re-opening event celebrates the new renovations in the Woodward Barn and kicks off the holiday season at Copper Mountain Resort.
Earlier this summer, the Woodward at Copper Barn underwent a half-million dollar renovation that opened the door to BMX, skateboards and slopestyle mountain bikes, in addition to skis and snowboards. These renovations include a new beginner foam pit with a 2-foot jump, a pump track designed for the development of park skills, and new programming to bridge the gap and see results on snow. Woodward Remix celebrates these renovations and welcomes the public to take part in free sessions from 12 - 6 p.m., Saturday - Sunday. These modified sessions are available for trampoline, skate and BMX and last 30 minutes. Sessions are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The weekend of events kicks off on Friday, Nov. 29, with the annual Yam Jam Rail Competition from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Set to take place on Lower Bouncer in Copper Mountain’s Center Village, skiers and riders of all levels are invited to compete for prizes, and registration is now open. On Friday, from 2 - 5 p.m., kids of all ages can create their own skateboard deck at the Woodward Cage as part of Santa’s Workshop: Create-A-Skate. For more information, visit WoodwardAtCopper.com.
Kicking off Saturday, Nov. 30, Denver Nuggets’ mascot Rocky will be at the Woodward at Copper Barn from 12 – 2 p.m. to sign autographs and meet fans. Woodward at Copper Barn demonstrations will take place in the afternoon with BMX from 2 - 3 p.m. and skate from 4 - 5 p.m. Fans can meet their favorite athletes, including professional skateboarders Red Bull’s Curren Caples and Volcom’s Louie Lopez, and XGames Bronze medalist Jono Schwan. Additionally, professional BMX riders Morgan Wade, Gary Young and XGames Gold medalist Zack Warden will be present. Members of the U.S. Freeskiing and U.S. Snowboarding halfpipe teams will also be in attendance for a meet and greet session at The Barn from 5 – 6 p.m. The action continues in Center Village with the Santa Sesh from 6 – 8 p.m. Guests can participate in or watch an open rail session under the lights, followed by a holiday snowcat parade, the official tree lighting and photos with Shreddin’ Santa.
