Plan Your Copper Peak Visit

Copper Peak Adventure Ride

The Copper Peak Adventure Ride lets visitors rise to the same heights as the athletes who have flown down the hill in years past. After an 800-foot chair lift ride to the crest of the hill -- a 360-foot copper-bearing volcanic outcrop -- visitors take a thrilling 18-story elevator to the main observation deck. From there, the truly fearless can walk an additional 8 stories to the top starting gate.

Once at the top, visitors can enjoy the highest, most awe-inspiring, unobstructed vista in the Midwest overlooking over 2500 square miles, 3 states and even Canada on a clear day. The Copper Peak Adventure Ride is an opportunity not to be missed!

Mountain Bike Trails

The Mountain Bike Trails at Copper Peak offer a great cross country mountain bike experience to those of all abilities. The ride is not a "technical" trail system, but it is made fun, challenging, and exciting by 600 feet of elevation gain over the 5.5-mile trail system.

Your ride begins at the base of the ski jump landing hill and descends down to the beautiful Black River to enjoy the river scenery. From there, winding trails lead you on a 600-vertical foot ascent to the top of the ski jump, where you can take in the beautiful 360-degree view and have a look at the massive ski jump structure. Rest up for an exhilarating descent back down to the base, with dozens of bermed corners and many fun "play" features along the trail.

The Copper Peak Trails are maintained by the Sisu Dirt Crew. For more information on the Crew and local trails visit

Gift Shop & Museum

The Copper Peak Museum & Gift Shop offers a variety of gifts and souvenirs, as well as artifacts illustrating the rich history of ski flying. From posters to tee shirts to caps, you can leave your adventure and take a little bit of Copper Peak with you. For those brave visitors who climbed to the very top of the ski flying scaffolding, be sure to stop at the Gift Shop on your way out for a special free bumper sticker  to illustrate your achievement. The building also includes restroom facilities.
