Copper Mountain Resort has lots to celebrate this December. Old Man Winter made a grand entrance with 63 inches of snow so far this month. Thanks to the new snow, Copper has been able to open plenty of terrain for skiers and riders to enjoy this holiday season.

On Saturday, Dec. 24 at 4:45 p.m., DJ Landry kicks off a Christmas Eve party in Burning Stones Plaza, Center Village. At 5 p.m., kids of all ages can meet at Mountain Melt restaurant to participate in the Kids Glowstick Pageant. This free activity allows families to have their very own parade around Center Village. At 6:15 p.m., Santa arrives for one last visit while a torchlight parade makes its way down the mountain. Fireworks round out the festivities at 6:30 p.m. with candlelight services at the Copper Community Chapel at 7:30 p.m.
