Copper Mountain guarantees snow
Resort officials confident in Mother Nature and their snowmaking systems will guarantee season pass holders good snow conditions or a refund. ''We guarantee you'll be happy with the conditions as of Dec. 13, or we'll give you your money back,'' the resort crows in promotional literature.
The no-questions-asked guarantee applies to the $239 season pass available through Oct. 20. The guarantee on a full-season pass is apparently unprecedented, although other resorts have dabbled in refunds for day passes, depending on conditions.
