Copper Mountain Resort, just 75 miles from Denver, is one of the largest resorts of Summit County, with nearly 2,500 acres of skiable terrain filled with chutes, groomers and glades. The gentle, sloping runs to the west get progressively steeper and more challenging as you travel east, and the collection of bowls in the back mountain offer the ultimate double-diamond experience.

The resort is naturally divided into three separate zones, each suited to different ability levels. The Village at Copper, or Center Village, is the main entrance to the resort and features primarily intermediate trails. The American Flyer high-speed quad from Center Village provides access to the flagship terrain park, Catalyst, which has the largest features including rails, ramps, jibs and jumps. East Village, with its high-speed six-pack Super Bee lift, offers direct access to expert trails and back-mountain terrain. The Union Creek area is predominantly green runs and is geared toward novice skiers and boarders.
After a day on the slopes, there are a number of restaurants and après-ski options back in the village area. Choose from pubs, cafés, delis and fine-dining to cap off your stay at one of Colorado’s premier ski and snowboard resorts.
