COPPER MOUNTAIN, COLO. WELCOMES INAGUARAL FAMILY ADVENTURE QUEST DURING FOURTH OF JULY WEEKEND
Quest Includes Obstacles, Mud Pits, Zip Lines, a Giant Slip-n-Slide and More
(Copper Mountain, Colo.) – Families of all ages are encouraged to spend their Fourth of July weekend at Copper Mountain, Colo., and take part in the inaugural Family Adventure Quest on July 2. The Family Adventure Quest, presented by the Toyota Kids Adventure Games (Kids A.G.), will offer families a chance to experience an adventure course like no other with zip lines, mud pits, slacklines, cargo nets, trekking, biking and a variety of other unique challenges in the Village at Copper and on Copper Mountain. Teams will consist of two challengers, one adult/teen and one child, who will tackle the course while they work together on building confidence, teamwork, communication and fun.
The Quest is a perfect opportunity for families to prepare for one of eight-races in the Kids A.G., a race series that takes place at ski resorts across the country. Unlike the Kids A.G., where only kids compete and the course is a parent-free zone, adults are welcome to participate in Quest. The Quest will feature two categories, a timed category for more competitive duos or a non-timed “fun run” for those looking to tackle the course without pressure. The competitive Quest will be limited to 84 participants while there will be no maximum number of participants for the “fun run.”
Registration will open April 18 at www.kidsadventuregames.com and early registration is encouraged. As part of the action, teams will also have an opportunity to participate in practice sessions on July 1 to hone their skills including teamwork, biking, climbing and more. Cost is $120 for a team of two until May 30 and then $150 until July 1. Practice sessions are optional and cost $55 per participant. All participants will be entered into a drawing following the challenge.
The Quest is a perfect opportunity for families to prepare their kiddos for one of eight-races in the Kids A.G., a race series that takes place at ski resorts across the country. Kids A.G. Co-Founder Helene Mattison, says the Quest will offer participants an introduction into adventure racing. “Adventure racing is a thrilling sport,” said Mattison. “It combines physical and mental challenges, teamwork and most importantly, it’s a lot of fun. We’re excited for our inaugural event at Copper Mountain where we’ll watch families work together to challenge themselves, build camaraderie and meet new friends along the way.”
During the Quest, Copper will offer families a variety of affordable lodging options to enjoy their Fourth of July Weekend. In addition to the Quest, Copper’s Independence Day celebration also will include activities, celebrations and free live music for the whole family. Friday, July 1 will feature an evening Pajama Jam with music for children and their families, while Saturday, July 2 will include the main event, awards ceremony, a campfire with live music and mountain-side fireworks. Sunday, July 3 is chock full of activities including a community bike ride, a stilt walking party, yoga, parachute races and more. The evening wraps up with a free concert featuring Grammy-nominated Three Dog Night.
“We’re really looking forward to hosting this event and all the participating families,” said Copper’s Director of Sales & Marketing, John Monson. “Our terrain will no doubt provide a fun and challenging course, while the slopeside village offers the perfect basecamp to enjoy all the holiday weekend festivities.”
When the celebrations at Copper wrap up, head to Copper’s sister town, Frisco for Frisco’s 2016 Fabulous Fourth of July on Monday, July 4. The fun is endless with a pancake breakfast, fishing derby, live music, the Fabulous Fourth of July Parade and – of course – fireworks over the reservoir.
