Colorado's Copper Mountain resort unveils no-snow obstacle attraction

With the snow season now fully closed, Colorado resort Copper Mountain has unveiled its newest no-snow attraction: the Woodward WreckTangle. Inspired by other similar obstacle courses, the Woodward WreckTangle is designed to test spatial awareness, agility and athleticism in both kids and adults.

The course is fully modular, so 9 different obstacles can be swapped in and out. The obstacles include a ropes course and a zip line.

The course utilizes cloud-based timing, so participants can compare results and times. Admission is $15 for two runs, or $69 for a full day of unlimited runs. Ages five and up can compete, but participants must be at least 40lbs and 36 inches tall.
