Analysing terrain data
Coppertone is a great long flat that will bore the heck out of most people.
The funny thing is the first pitch is definitely a lot more difficult than the rest of the trail.
Access this from the top of the American Flyer lift, taking a right onto Coppertone.
The first pitch is pretty steep so if you are not good trying going across the trail and then back, in a big traverse.
After that it flattens out to a complete pancake that is almost uphill at points, and it goes on for quite a while.
There is another quick steeper pitch when going by a maintenance building and then another long flat till it meets up with Carefree.
I guess the pitches that are steeper will challenge the beginner but the rest is flat as a parking lot.
Watch out for people coming from the right side off some of the steeper pitches.
