When Copper Mountain postponed opening day by a week, it was enough to make faithful skiers, snowboarders and nearly a dozen visiting ski teams nervous about the season to come. But Mother Nature intervened, bringing 14 inches of snow in less than a week and another 7 inches the night before first chair. You know what that means: Powder Day.
