Le projet

Copper Mountain, located 120 km from Denver, is one of the busiest resorts in Colorado and, at an altitude of 3,753 m, one of the highest ski resorts in North America.
Unlike most American ski resorts, Copper Mountain offers an enticing playground for both beginner and expert skiers alike. The TELEMIX® operates at 5 m/s and carries 3,200 passengers per hour, an increase in capacity of 30% compared with the previous equipment.

The American Eagle is one of three ropeway systems equipped with a DirectDrive® supplied to the United States in 2018. With its virtuous, quiet and low-energy motor, the American Eagle TELEMIX® represents a technological leap for Copper Mountain Operators.

Middle station

The middle station allows you to descend from the chairlift at the same location as the former arrival station of Hot Wheels. Passengers who choose to stay and explore the remaining 400 m now have access to the top of the Sherwood Cliffs in 5 minutes, Art’s Knob Trail and all the slopes served by Sherwood Express (without having to cross Ray’s Rut or High Traverse).

More direct access

to the entire area

The Alpine Meadows slope, served by Treeline Cirque, is home to the resort’s largest, steepest and widest gullies, offering stunning views of Lake Tahoe and perfect ski conditions in winter. It used to take 15 minutes to go up with the Hot Wheels chairlift, and then a long crossing along Ray’s Rut when today it is done quickly and easily in less than 10 minutes!

Safety

and stability

The location and orientation of the new chairlift are slightly more protected than the other chairlifts on the crest line, so it continues to operate in strong wind and bad weather.

Shorter waiting time

During the past seasons, Summit Express was the main chairlift to reach these tracks and gullies from the bottom of the station, attracting a large crowd on snow days. With Treeline Cirque, skiers have two options; the crowds are more dispersed, waiting time is reduced and comfort is improved!
