Copper Mountain Witchcraft Event

Our family always looks forward to the fall season and Halloween. This year, we attended the Copper Mountain Witchcraft Event at the Copper Mountain Resort and we all had a great time! The drive there was gorgeous seeing the fresh snow on the mountain tops and the trees turning to fall colors. Our daughter, Rachel, was so excited to take her first hay ride and visit her first haunted house.

After we arrived at The Copper Mountain Resort, we walked into the festival and saw so much to do. Rachel wanted to find something that she could enjoy with other kids. She really had fun in the Bounce House playing and jumping around. She was dressed in her Wonder Woman costume for Halloween, so it was always easy to find her when she was bouncing around from side to side. After that, we had fun with the Apple Launch trying to get those apples in the target, my hubby won that contest of course. Then, Rachel said she was ready for the Haunted House. We really didn’t expect much, but we were really surprised! They really did an excellent job designing and setting up several areas and rooms that were so scary for Rachel and even for me I will admit. My hubby and I agreed this was one of the best Haunted Houses we have even seen!

Before we looked for something to eat and they had a lot of choices, we decided to take Rachel on her first hay ride. She really enjoyed the ride up up the mountain and had fun hanging out with the other kids on the ride. Our whole family really had so much fun at The Copper Mountain Witchcraft Event that we are looking forward to going again next year!

Our Summer Family Adventure at Copper Mountain Resort

Our family had a BLAST at the Copper Mountain Resort since we had their summer activity pass. They have so many activities to do that any family would have a great time. We started with the Go Karts since it was located where we parked.

My hubby drove our nine year old daughter, Rachel, in a Go Kart and I was driving in my own Go Kart. We had so much fun ‘racing’ each other around the track lap after lap.

After that, we took our Rachel to the Zip Line that goes over a small lake. This was her favorite activity even though she also really had fun on the rock-climbing wall, the Bumper Boats, Hydrobike and the Bungee jumping that is secured to the ground. Also, we really enjoyed riding the chairlift up the mountain to see incredible views and to take some fantastic pictures. Our family adventure at Copper Mountain truly was a memorable time for all of us.

Getting a Boat

Many boaters and fishermen buying a new boat in the fall months as opposed to in the spring. If you think about it, that actually does make some sense. By doing this in the fall, you won’t need to worry about winterizing it, there is potential for an upgrade, new boats don’t require a lot of maintenance for the season, buying it in the fall means that you will be a step ahead come springtime, and finally, you will get amazing discounts on the year’s models. This will make boat financing that much less painful.

 Buying a boat doesn’t need to be as painful as one might think. The prices for boats will vary depending on the make and size, but many boat dealers and manufacturers can make sure that you get into the captain’s chair for less than what you would pay monthly for a new car.

Owning a Boat

Many people all over the world dream of one day owning a boat. This can be because of all of the activities that owning a boat makes possible as well as for the freedom that owning a boat gives you. There are many physical and physiological benefits to owning a boat too. Buying a boat can radically expand any family’s options when it comes to weekend activities and longer holidays, ranging from sports on the water to a leisurely fishing trip.

For the Family

A boat is a good idea for any family who enjoys spending time on the water. You can have a boat just to use in the summer if you live in colder climes, or you can use it all year long in places like Florida. Either way, trips on the boat can be wonderful times for reinforcing the familial bond between children and adults. Depending on the size of the boat, you can take it out for a day or more and have nothing but bonding time. Boats are especially great for summer vacations.

Speaking of Bonding

40% of all households listed relaxing with their friends and family as their most enjoyable boating activity in a study done by the National Marine Manufacturers Association in 2005. This means that the best part about boating isn’t waterskiing or fishing, the best thing is the opportunity to have fun with your family and friends. This is time that is spent away from things like the video games and television sets. It creates an atmosphere that will bring people together and one that will create fond memories that will last a lifetime.

Improved Quality of Life

Boating for recreation can go a long way towards improving the quality of your life. As you move forward in your boat, you can watch as your troubles seem to fade in the distance. That doesn’t mean that you won’t have to face them when you get back to dry land though, but at least you can escape for a little while. Recreational boating provides people with a constructive type of outlet for entertainment that will reduce stress while providing rich opportunities for self discovery. You can learn how to fish or water ski or just enjoy watching the sunset on the water.

Affordability

Do you have the opinion that recreational boating might just be too expensive in terms of your current financial situation? Reconsider. Yes, gas prices might be always on the way up, but coastline can always be found close by so you don’t need to drive far to find water.

Water Accessibility

Are you aware that 90% of the people in America live within an hour’s travel of a body of water that can be navigated by a boat? That means that accessing water can be a lot easier and more convenient than you might have known.

A Reduction of Stress

A little boating can go a long way when it comes to reducing stress. In the same study mentioned earlier, boating was listed as one of the top three stress relieving activities.
Last but a far throw from least is the fact that one of the top listed reasons to own a boat is because it is fun. There is a plethora of activities to explore when talking about boating – from fishing and water skiing to snorkeling and just relaxing on the water, you can do it all…as long as you own a boat.

Summer Fun at Copper Mountain!

Our family visited Copper Mountain last weekend to see what all there was to do there.  When we first arrived, we noticed there were people of all ages listening to music at the base of the Copper Mountain Resort.  I love to eat, so I was thrilled to see so many local restaurant vendors offering their specialty foods.  My daughter was so excited because of all of the activities they have to do.

After we listened to some music and had a great lunch, we started to experience all the fun activities which includes:  Go-Karts, Bumper Boats, Bungee Jump, a Climbing Wall and a Zip Line.  As a family, we really had fun together in the Bumper Boats and the Go-Karts.  Our daughter was brave enough to try the zip-line that goes over a pond. At first she was to scared to go, then after she did it, she said right away, “I want to go again”!  We really had a blast during our visit at Copper Mountain Resort with all of the fun activities, music and great food they have to enjoy.
