Copper's Rocky Mountain Coaster is just one of several mountain coasters that can be found around Colorado ski areas. Vail, Breckenridge, Snowmass and Purgatory ski areas also offer coasters. And the ride can also be enjoyed in the towns of Glenwood Springs and Estes Park.
Mountain Coasters are also scattered across the Northeast and West. Cliffside Mountain Coaster at Mount Van Hoevenberg in Lake Placid, N.Y., became the longest mountain coaster in the U.S. when it opened late in 2020; it follows the path of the 1980 Olympic bobsled track. Killington and Okemo in Vermont, Jiminy Peak in Massachusetts and Attitash in New Hampshire are among the other Northeast ski resorts with mountain coasters.
In California, Heavenly Valley's Ridge Rider Mountain Coaster offers views of Lake Tahoe. Elsewhere in the West, the popular ski towns of Park City, Utah, and Jackson Hole, Wyo., also offer mountain coasters.
The coasters are also popular in the Tennessee Smoky Mountain towns of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, where seven are on offer.
