Is there a Freestyle park?

Yes, we are happy to see how much the freestylers love the opportunity to hang out and practice our mixed obstacles - there is something for everyone from the flat box to the rainbow rail.

EQUIPMENT

Is it possible to use my own equipment?

You are very welcome to use your own equipment, as long it is properly maintained. Remember to check your skis/snowboard regularly in case of wear and tear. If your skis/snowboard have dull edges, are too worn down, or in other ways need service, the rental shop will offer you free rental skis while your own are being serviced. Find out more in the rental shop.

Is there a storage space for my own equipment?

In the future, you will be able to store your ski equipment at CopenHill. We are currently working on a solution.

Does the base wear the skis or snowboards down?

Ski:

You can use your own equipment on the ski slope. We've experienced that skis with the production method "sintered base" has less risk of getting damaged due to frictional heat, but this is not a guarantee. At the top of the ski lift, there is a black silicone mat, which the skis must slide over. Here, the skis are greased with silicone, which along with the silicone on the ski slope, makes the skis glider on the surface. For safety, check regularly for any signs of damage to the skis. Driving at high speeds increases the risk of frictional heat damaging the base of the skis. CopenHill does not provide any warranty or compensation for protected skis.

Snowboard:

It is very important to be sure that the entire surface of your board gets covered in silicone, otherwise the base can sometimes make marks and cuts on your board where you put the weight.
We are currently making a list of the different board types/brands, that may have difficulties dealing with the heat from the friction that the carving produces.

Is it mandatory for everyone to wear a helmet?

It is mandatory for anyone under the age of 18 to wear a helmet while skiing, and we strongly recommend that everybody takes their safety repercussions and wears one when skiing/boarding.

CLOTHING AND WEATHER CONDITIONS

Will it be possible to ski all year round?

Yes, it will be. If it rains the base will become more slippery, but it will also make it more fun to ski on. If it snows – just perfect, then we can welcome you to a few hours of "real" ski holiday.

What type of clothing should I wear?

There is no specific demand on what clothes to wear, but we recommend wearing clothes that covers your legs and arms, plus gloves, to minimize damages if you should fall. Have a look at this video with Thomas Uhrskov that explains what kind of gear you should wear here.

Does it ruin my clothes if I fall?

Depending on how wildly you ski, the clothes may get marks or get worn. The silicone layer on the base can also leave marks on the clothes. Be aware that the silicone on the base is somewhat sticky and can stick to the clothes if you carry the skis over your shoulder.

CHILDREN

Is there a specific area for children to ski?

We love children! And therefore, we have done our very best to offer them the best possible experience at CopenHill. We are working on a children's area at the foot of the hill, and we will also hold many children's events throughout the year. Also keep an eye on our website, where we will soon tell you more about our upcoming super cool kids club MINI365, which will offer the kids a lot of benefits and fun events!

Will it be possible for children to ski without their parents?

How early can children start skiing?

In reality, there are no rules for how early children can start skiing at CopenHill, but we recommend that they are at least 3 years old, to ensure that the children get a good experience and get off to a good start. We have a fantastic ski school (Snowminds) who loves to help the children get started!

Pets (e.g. dogs) are not allowed on the roof or in the ski center. Service dogs are an exepction and may be brought along.

How long before my pre-booked ski time should I be there?

It is entirely up to you, but we recommend that you arrive some time in advance and no later than 30 minutes before your ski time starts, so you are ready to take the ski lift when your preebooked time begins. Remember to include time to rent / buy equipment, and possibly pick up your ski pass at the ski center.
