Condition Updates  
Route: Union Creek Parking
Posted On: 2021-08-24, By: JasonKline
Info: No snow or ice from the previous storm. The smoke wasn't an issue. That was the first time I ever saw a roller coaster while hiking! 
Route: From ski area
Posted On: 2021-05-09, By: 9patrickmurphy
Info: Parked at Union Creek parking lot, there were cars that appeared to be parked there overnight so no issues for day use. Started skinning up from West Village after walking past a sign that said "no uphill acess", which seemed odd as it was off-season and public land. An employee on a snowmobile found us not long into our hike and told us that they were logging and conducting controlled burns today, which explained the sign. He explained to us that Lumberjack liftline and above was fine, though I'm not sure if that was because were were actually allowed to or if he was just letting us. After that, we didn't see anyone else all day. Easy skin up Roundabout and Soliloquoy to the top of Timberline Express, then took the blues up from there to get up towards Sierra and Celebrity Ridge. We opted to skin up to the ridge above Copper Bowl and deal with the up and down as the traverse from where we were would hav required a good bit of descent. Skinning up Jacque's East ridge went okay, but we had to switch to booting. A bit of talus to walk over near the top. Skied from 15ft from the summit. East bowl looked great, I didn't take it as my partner decided not to summit and was waiting for me on the ridge. Duffy's Rage looke pretty good, except the entrance doesn't look very skiable. 
Route: Copper Mountain
Posted On: 2021-05-03, By: hr011242
Info: From Union Creek Parking at Copper Mountain. Skinned up pretty much continuous snow to the top, barring a few short tundra sections. Found ski crampons helpful towards the top of the summit ridge. We opted for a descent into Copper Bowl where the snow was fantastic! Duffy's Rage is looking nice and filled in too, albeit a tad corniced.  
Route: Copper Creek

Info: A few snow fields to walk through on the east ridge. Can avoid a couple by dropping down to the north, but not worth it on the others. No snow below treeline. 
Route: Via Graveline Gulch and Cooper Mountain
Posted On: 2019-07-21, By: supranihilest
Info: Aside from a short snow crossing on the ridge up Jacque the entire route is dry. The ridge is somewhat loose Class 2+. Route finding is the only issue on this loop - it's very steep up Copper Mountain and the descent will take you through the gulch, which is heavily forested, without a trail. Bring a GPS if you aren't confident in your route finding abilities. 
Route: North ridge from Searle pass
Posted On: 2017-12-18, By: SnowAlien
Info: Colorado Trail is packed down by foot traffic to Janet's cabin. From there, we postholed 0.5 mi to Searle pass (flotation advisable), and then took mostly dry ridge to the summit. 
Route: Tucker Gulch Approach

Info: Clear and very nice enjoyable trip w/ reaching summit. Invigorating Hobby. Great, beautiful 13er mountain. This quality, classic route is a unique undertaking and lightly traveled. Incredible views of Gore and Mosquito Ranges. Prime, excellent, and bluebird summer conditions up high for navigating slopes and ridge line extremely well. Trail runners and light pack were good. Climb safely / swiftly in the hills folks. Pictures included as beta 
Route: NE Ridge from Copper Mtn
Posted On: 2015-06-29, By: Tony1
Info: Almost completely snow-free from Center Village in Copper to the summit of Jacque, roughly following the American Flyer lift, then up the ridge to the top of the ski area, then along the ridge to the summit. The ground is still very wet though. Bright microspikes but didn‘t use them.
