Copper Mountain

Have you been skiing or snowboarding at Copper Mountain lately? It's just down the road from Breckenridge and 75 miles west of Denver and Denver International Airport (DIA). Built to be a family vacation ski resort, Copper knows their audience. They have made certain you’ll have everything you could possibly want. A grocery store, ski shops, shopping, over a dozen restaurants, it's all right there in its three villages: Center, East, and West. Ski and snowboard rentals are available at the base of the mountain and learn-to-ski programs at ski and snowboard schools.

A Family-Friendly Mountain

On the mountain you will find naturally divided terrain, which means that the beginner runs are in one place, the intermediate slope in another, and the expert / advanced trails in another separate section of the mountain. All are joined together by shuttles or mountain ski lifts. And you won’t have to worry about accidentally getting onto a trail that’s beyond your abilities. There are three impressive terrain areas, as well as their awesome Main Vein 22' Superpipe for snowboarders and skiers, and two front-side alpine bowls that offer downhill skiers opportunities. On Tucker, you find backside bowl with snowcat service and back-bowl powder. Learn more about the Ski Experience and Snowboarding Zones here.

Off the Slopes

The village was set up to be entertaining—almost like a winter time theme park, but the theme and rides are the snow-covered mountain itself. There’s a variety of lively nightly entertainment and some impressive bands play here throughout the year. Also, the restaurants and inviting pubs of Breckenridge and Frisco are right down the road. Transportation in the area is available by airport shuttle service, car, limos, and Greyhounds. Of course there are discounted lodging, lift ticket, vacation packages and transportation discounts available too. Voted the locals choice for years now, they really do have to made.

Getting Here

Copper is accessible from I-70 and is located in the middle of Colorado. Fly into Denver, Salt Lake City, or Grand Junction and enjoy the scenery on your drive. Vail and Eagle are also hosts to regional airports, but prepare yourself, flying over the mountains is always an experience.
