So, if you are looking to make some laps through Central Park before Copper shuts down for the season on April 16th, be aware that you will not have full access to the park from April 2nd through April 12th due to the competitions. You can also expect some longer lift lines than usual due to the thousands of competitors who will be using the main lifts to access different zones for competitions.
