Beginners have got a place all their own at Copper Mountain!
And it’s certainly not because Copper Mountain offers too little variety for more experienced skiers. On the contrary; even very advanced skiers will be able to appreciate Copper Mountain. The advantage for beginners is that the ski area can be divided into three naturally-separated sections. Trails in the eastern section are dominated by steep slopes, the middle section, with its many intermediate trails is a favorite of carving fans, and the western section, full of gentle, easy slopes (green in the US), is a haven to the beginners. Insiders describe this as „naturally-divided terrain.“ If you happen to be starting off at the base terminal at Union Creek, you can try out your ski legs on the beginners’ slope off the Kokomo lift. Then you can head off to High Point, Lumberjack or American Flyer, where you’ll find a great variety of green trails. Where they lost points: some of the most frequently used beginners’ chairlifts are not equipped with seatbelts (including High Point).
