Copper Uncorked appeals to wine-lovers, wing-aholics & snowshoeing addicts
Copper Mountain hosts an interesting and casual wine event during Valentines Day Weekend or Presidents Weekend. “Copper Uncorked (and In Love)” is not your average wine festival. It takes place at Burning Stones Plaza in Center Village and features affordable wines from across the globe ripe for tasting throughout the February 14-16 weekend, while chefs from around Copper Mountain compete for best pairing during the Wine-n-Wing Challenge on Saturday, February 15.
Following is an event that appeals to me about as much as a chance to sample those wines, a Moonlight Snowshoe Tour from 5 to 8 p.m. Copper Mountain’s congenial Resort Ambassadors lead the tour, which starts from West Village and traverses frozen creeks and wooded trails, leading to a romantic meadow (actually around Copper Creek Golf Course) lit by the full moon. Finish up the evening with s’mores around the bonfire and a mulled wine on the plaza. Space is limited, please call Guest Services to reserve a spot, call 970-968-2318 ext. 45861.
