I was just wondering if anyone knew if Copper Mtn. had a beacon park and also what ski area in CO, UT, NM etc do actually have beacon parks? Would be an interesting list to have(or if such a list already exists would be great to know where to find it....). The parks of course make for a great way to get beacon practice. Thanks in advance!

I was told by several patrollers to try and find beacon parks that have gone wireless...apparently buried cables cause significant interference. Me and 2 other friends experienced this at the A basin park, with 2 different beacons, and were pretty confused about it before being told the cause.

Now it's an old post but pretty much every area owned by Vail resorts has a beacon park. Also you can get a lot of help from the patrollers for more than just beacons. They get excited when they see people in there cuz they get used very rarely and they love to help.

I mean by helping you know it means they won't get called later when something bad happens cuz ur not ready. :)

p.s: sorry for all the typing slang I'll try to keep it down in the future
