Copper Mountain ski resort is widely recognized for its special terrain features along with big mountain statistics. To start with, the resort offers 2,490 acres of naturally divided terrain, providing distinct areas for beginners, intermediate and expert skiers and riders. Topping out at an elevation reaching 12,313 feet, there is something for every skier and snowboarder here with steeps, open bowls, glades and long mellow groomed runs. Other numbers that will bring delight are a vertical drop of 2,601 feet and an average snowfall of 305 inches. The mountain resort has three base villages, free parking lots and resort buses that shuttle to and from. Within the three villages, you’ll find an opportunity to ice skate, snowshoe, go snow tubing, cross-country ski, dine, shop and visit the athletic club and spa. Try out your tricks on the mountain with two pipes (a super pipe and a mini) and three terrain parks providing progressive features for all ability levels. Copper is also home to Woodward Copper, an indoor freestyle training facility that is open to the public for novices and serious athletes alike. The resort remains active in the summer, and after the snow melts there are plenty of outdoor events for all from June through September including paddling on West Lake, hiking, biking and a zipline. Copper Mountain is only 75 miles from Denver and with easy access right off the main interstate highway, your morning flight into Denver International Airport could put you at the resort in the afternoon.
