Copper Mountain Resort will postpone its opening day, originally scheduled for Friday, Oct. 31st and will announce a new opening day as soon as snow conditions permit which in turn puts our opening Alpine races of the season in jeopardy. We will announce any changes to the competition schedule on Monday November 3rd, 2014.
Officials at Copper Mtn said warm weather in the last two weeks limited their ability to make snow. “It’s been unseasonably warm in general, pretty much statewide,” said Eric Thaler, meteorologist with the National Weather Service based in Boulder.
Denver set a high-temperature record on Friday and Summit County has also been warmer than usual for October. According to data from the agency’s recording station 1 mile east of Dillon, October has seen an overall average temperature 2.6 degrees above the 30-year average, with several days more than 5 degrees above average.
Colder temperatures forecast for Sunday through Tuesday should provide the last push the resorts need before opening, he said.
Each week this season they’ll create a series of questions or tasks for you to do and email them over to you at the start of the week. Then on Friday they'll pick a winner and send them some free Icelantic Stuff!
