The Fall Color Blog – Fall Color Tours In Michigan

Copper Peak Ski Jump and Adventure Ride – Western U.P.

The Copper Peak Adventure Ride lets visitors rise to the same heights as the athletes who have flown down the hill in years past. After an 800-foot chair lift ride to the crest of the hill (a 360 foot copper-bearing volcanic outcrop), visitors take a thrilling 18-story elevator to the main observation deck. From there, the truly fearless can walk an additional 8 stories to the top starting gate.

Once at the top, visitors can enjoy the highest, most awe-inspiring, unobstructed vista in the Midwest overlooking over 2500 square miles, 3 states and even Canada on a clear day. The Copper Peak Adventure Ride is an opportunity not to be missed!

FALL COLOR UPDATE – 9/16: The leaves are starting to turn in the western UP! Predictions are for peak color to be about a week later than normal, which would put us in the first week of October. We’re projecting that for the upcoming week we will be at 10-25% color. Copper Peak is the ultimate place to see fall color – don’t miss out!…

Exciting News!! On Wednesday 3/8/17, the Copper Peak Board of Director’s executed the easement for the biking and hiking trails at Copper Peak. The easement is a collaborative agreement between Copper Peak Inc and SISU Dirt Crew (a committee within SISU Ski Fest Inc) allowing for the use of the trails that have recently been built at Copper Peak. The multi-use trails are 6 miles in length with over 500 feet of elevation gain with superb scenery of the Black River, the Gogebic Range and Lake Superior.

We have funded the first year of planning/engineering and started a Founders Circle to continue the fundraising. We are in conversation with many interested partners and also plan to start an international crowd funding project mid to late December so individuals around the world can be involved as well.

VEIT is just down the road from me, glad things are getting closer. We're going to come for the events once the hill is open. Loved visiting and exploring the site, looking forward to winter things!
