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!…

IMPORTANT UPDATE: As you have seen through our photos, planning and fundraising continue to move forward here at Copper Peak! We have the support of the International Ski Federation and have received input from some of the brightest, most experienced hill designers and engineers in the world.

Due to a variety of factors, including fundraising efforts, weather and engineering needs, we currently plan to begin hosting events – like the FIS Summer Grand Prix – starting in 2018-19.

If you or your company is interested in joining the Founders Circle of Champions - a select group of leading individuals, businesses, foundations, and organizations that share this exciting vision – please contact Bob Jacquart at bob@copperpeak.com.

COPPER PEAKWe 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.

The color may be past peak, but you only have one more week in 2016 to take in the views from the top of Copper Peak. The Adventure Ride is open 10-5 through Sunday, 10/23. ... See MoreSee Less
