Copper Mountain Resort

Copper Mountain

On slope, Copper Mountain's terrain is naturally divided for all abilities and includes fantastic bowl skiing. Off slope, Copper features three recently completed base villages that have redefined the Copper experience with accommodations, restaurants, bars, shops, and a kids-only lodge. Come visit Copper Mountain today. Everyone deserves a snow day!

Recommendations

With its ownership constantly changing hands, Copper Mountain has a bit of an identity crisis, but its still maintains a dedicated following of local skiers and day-trippers from Denver. Starting from the west side of the resort in Union Creek, and heading east toward East Village, the terrain gradually gets more challenging. This means that beginner need not worry about getting run over by experts, and experts don't have to worry about running down beginners when they return to the base area. Snowcat skiing is an added perk. Caveat: No dedicated ski town, so don't expect much nightlife.
