Copper Peak Loop

Copper Peak Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Built in 1970, the Copper Peak Ski Flying Hill hosted the first international ski jumping competition in the Western Hemisphere. As equipment and techniques improved, the ski jumpers began landing too far down the hill for safety, and the ski-flying hill was closed to competition. Today the lift whisks tourists up the mountain, where an elevator continues the journey to the top of the flying hill.

The route described here climbs the ski-flying hill, descends on a twisting singletrack, and continues along the Black River. The trails are inconsistently marked with blue-and-white mountain bike signs and orange arrows; however, you can spend many aerobic hours climbing up and down the twisting trails without getting lost. If you are not in an energetic mood, you and your mountain bike can take the chairlift to the top for a fast singletrack descent. Tread: 1.1 miles of singletrack, 3.8 miles of doubletrack, 0.8 mile of paved road."
