Copper Mountain is famous for its naturally divided terrain that has distinct sections of advanced, intermediate and beginner trails. The resort provides visitors with spectacular views and world class facilities combined with great terrain options for any ability level.
Located in Summit County, about 75 miles west of Denver, Copper Mountain is a Colorado favorite. The resort is also home to Woodward at Copper, an indoor freestyle training facility that is open to the public.
Copper Mountain is an excellent family destination and offers a wide array of activities besides skiing and snowboarding including zip-lines, tubing, ice skating, and more.
Copper Mountain is a unique resort that has something for everyone. The terrain is naturally divided into beginner, intermediate, and expert areas, each located on different parts of the mountain and each generally served by its own lifts. The result is that beginners aren't intimidated by fast-moving experts and advanced skiers aren't held up by slower beginners.
Cat skiing is free at Copper and definitely worth checking out. The two cats service Tucker Mountain and Copper Bowl and provide an interesting change of pace from riding the lifts.
