Located in the beautiful Goodrich Creek valley, Coppervale is easily accessed a short distance south of Highway 36 between Susanville and Westwood. Look for sign on side of road.
Established in the 1940's as a club by citizens of Westwood and Susanville. The original lift was a rope tow run off the rear wheels of a car chained on the top of the mountain. The first person up in the morning hiked up with gas and started the engine.
Lassen College took over the ski hill in the 1960's and started the 1st official ski classes. The rope tow engine was moved to the bottom of the hill and refitted with a new engine and other modifications.
In 1977 the Poma lift was installed to provide service to the summit, where skiers have access to over 700 feet of vertical drop.
A lodge is located at base of slope for warming up, stowing your gear, and eating lunch. Snackbar serves hamburgers, drinks, and more.
