The Ski Resort

Copper Mountain is located about 75 miles west of Denver. It opened in November 1972, hosted the Alpine Skiing World Cup tour in 1976 and, over the years, grew to its current size of 2,465 acres offering 142 trails and 23 lifts in total. These days, Copper Mountain is one of Colorado’s premier year-round resorts for both summer and winter service featuring an almost equal share of beginner, intermediate, advanced and expert runs. 

The north facing peaks of Copper Mountain offer an excellent terrain for expert and intermediate, but also beginner skiers, while it boasts a naturally divided ski domain that allows for every ability level to ski the terrain most appropriate for them. What’s more is that each and every skier of those three domains can ski back into the base area. Beginners are in best hands at Kokomo lift serving plenty of greens. After some practice, head uphill via Union Creek, Lumberjack or American Flyer.

Intermediate and advanced skiers are in good keeping at the groomers served by the American Eagle lift and Timberline Express. Real experts should head to the area around Resolution, Alpine or Super Bee in order to enjoy challenging double diamonds. Advanced skiers should definitely make use of a snowcat ride to Tucker Mountain opening up some steep, ungroomed runs.

Moreover, Copper Mountain is also a paradise for snowboarders and freestyle skiers. Experience great moments at Main Vein Superpipe, Woodward Copper Central Park, which is next to Loverly Lane serviced by the American Flyer lift, Eagle Jib Park or the Upper and Lower Playground Parks.
