The Western Michigan Bike Club (WMBC) has teamed up with the Copper Peak Board in an effort to create a mountain biking trail system that takes full advantage of the beautiful landscape of Copper Peak. The trail system was mapped out last year (summer 2013) with Randy Spangler, who is a Trail Solutions Specialist for IMBA (International Mountain Biking Association.) IMBA is a globally recognized as a trail solutions company which as been designing and building trails since 1988.
The trail system designed for Copper Peak will cater to all types of riders, whether you are a beginner or extreme downhill rider, this trail system has a little something for everyone. There is a little over of 5 miles of amazing mountain bike trails that traverses through Copper Peaks majestic landscape.
Keep your eye out for this amazing trail system, as it will be ready to ride in the near future!
Copper Peak offers many activities which can accommodate all types of people. Whether you want to enjoy the peaceful scenery, snap some photos, hike down to the beautiful Black River, or take the Adventure Ride.
The Adventure Ride allows you to take the chairlift up, alongside the landing and view the majestic landscape. Once you are greeted atop the lift, you can take the elevator up to the top of the jump which gives you first hand experience of the rush that skiers felt at the top of Copper Peak. On a clear day, you can see Canada, 3 states, and Lake Superior.
The Adventure Ride is a once and a lifetime opportunity not to be passed up!
Copper Peaks last ski flying event was held in 1994. As technology progressed in the sport, skiers would now be able to out jump the designated landing zone, which is why a meet hasn't been held there since.
The Copper Peak Board is now working on ways bring back ski flying to the iconic jump. The Board is fund raising for money that will go towards updating the jump which allows skiers to safely fly off of the legendary jump once again.
North of Copper Peak, you can hike through the woods to various waterfalls (Algonquin Falls, Great Conglomerate Falls, Potawatomi Falls, Gorge Falls, and Sandstone Falls.)
Whether it's Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, the waterfalls are always something to check out in the area!
Copper Peaks board of hardworking men is what allows the rich heritage of the jump to be carried on. These men volunteer their time working the chairlifts, maintaining the property or educating the tourists about the rich history of the facility.
