Copper Mountain in Colorado: Unique Geography For All Levels of Skiers
There is so much to recommend Copper Mountain Ski Resort in Colorado.
It’s very close to Denver and Denver International Airport, and when you pull off I-70 West, you are in the Copper parking lot. The mountain itself is perfect for all levels of skiers in that beginners have their own area, intermediates have a separate area, and expert skiers have a part of the mountain where less skilled skiers can never accidentally wander onto those slopes.
Copper Mountain is an official training venue for the U.S. Ski Team.
Located just 75 miles west of Denver, Colo. in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Copper Mountain Resort is an ideal vacation destination with a laid-back, inclusive feeling for all. Three pedestrian-friendly village areas provide a vibrant atmosphere with lodging, retail outlets, restaurants, bars and family activities. During the winter months, Copper’s naturally-divided terrain offers world-class skiing and riding for all ages and abilities. Each summer, the mountain transforms into an unspoiled playground for hikers, mountain bikers and all those seeking a genuine Colorado experience. Copper Mountain Resort boasts a jam-packed event calendar year-round and is home to Woodward Copper – an action sports training facility with progression-focused programming.
