The open-air chairlift at Copper Mountain transports you to 11,375 feet, where you’ll be awed by the amazing views. You can have lunch at the Solitude Station, explore a little, then hike or ride the lift back down for Center Village activities and events. Visit Guest Services in the Center Village to pick up a ticket to the top. Buy a Summer Activity Day Pass and enjoy all the fun in the village and on the mountain that you can handle. Copper will start running the American Eagle lift about mid-June when most of the snow at the base has melted.
