The resort trucked the leftover snow from the winter up the hill for an “awesome snowfield” in the summer.

“We push it together to man-make a really awesome snowfield that gives us the ability to snowboard all summer long,” said Ronnie Barr, a supervisor at Copper Mountain. “This is the only facility like this in Colorado.”
