Uphill Access Route 1 from East Village Map

This is one of Copper Mountain's designated routes for skinning outside of operating hours, typically before 8:30am and after 4:30pm. It begins in East Village at the base of Super Bee Express, then follows blue runs Skid Road, Main Vein, and Rhapsody to the green EZ Road. The route is sometimes closed above EZ Road due to winching, but if it's open you can continue up Copperopolis and Collage to the top of Super Bee.

Description

Uphill users are responsible for knowing and following all guidelines and closures, which may change throughout the season, and an uphill pass is required. You can find more information and purchase a pass at Copper's Uphill Access page.
