Copper is an advanced site (P4/H4 only) requires a ski pass and requires close cordination with the Ski Patrol. Summit County offers several other sites that are much less restrictive, and more accessable.
Advanced Pilots please review this Document: Copper Launch, Landings and Maps
Note: Landing zones have potential convergence issues due to the various air flows.
Use alternate LZ in convergence conditions when main LZ is too hazardous for a safe landing.
Pilots should have special skills: High Altitude (HA) and Turbulance (TUR)
