The Mountain

Copper Mountain is the place to be if you like to ski long crusin’ runs. The “Naturally Divided Terrain” trail systems are separated by ability levels so you can ski freely in your "comfort zone" with easy navigation. The slopes are laid out with “Easiest Cruisers” at one end, "Steep, Deep and Bumps" at the other end, with “Intermediate” in the middle. Most of the runs are north facing - which makes for great ski conditions. From bowls, bumps, cruisers, and glades, to pipes, parks and their family-friendly beginner’s area … you’ll be sure to find something you’ll like! The 5 high speed lifts will quickly get you up the 4 mountains, with 23 total lifts. And…our group lift ticket prices and ski/board rentals will be hard to beat anywhere. You can count on it!

Copper is Summit County’s largest ski area with 2,450 skiable acres, 2,601 vertical feet, 9,712’ Base, 12,313’ Top, with over 125 runs.
Skiing ability: Beginner 21% / Intermediate 25% / Advanced 36% / Expert 18%.
