Weave your way through Copper Mountain’s snow maze

Editor’s note: This story has been updated to include all three areas where guests can fill out a waiver, plus where the resort got the snow for the sculpture.

While Keystone Resort is touting its “World’s Largest Mountaintop Snow Fort,” Copper Mountain is carving up something of its own. 

The resort is opening up its snow maze, which is located in the East Village next to the Super Bee lift. 

The maze will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., though these hours are subject to change without notice. The maze is free to access except that guests need to sign a waiver prior to entering. These free tickets are available starting Friday, Jan. 13. Guests can get them online or in person at the guest services kiosk at Copper Station. Guests can also fill them out using the QR code posted on the outside of the maze.

The maze is for ages 3 and up. Guests must adhere to the maze’s rules: ski and snowboard gear are not allowed inside and alcohol, food and drinks are prohibited. 

According to Keith Martin of Snice Carvings, the company that designed and built the maze, the structure took 10 days to build. It’s about 90% larger than last year and is approximately 8,000 square feet. The snow was repurposed from Rosi’s Run which is used for race training in the early season.
