Copper Mountain is one of the Summit County ski resorts and has been a favorite destination to Colorado locals for years.  Since it is not owned by Vail Resorts, the mountain generally is less crowded that the other resorts on I-70.

Copper offers a varied terrain for all skiers.  The mountain logically progresses from beginner to intermediate to advanced slopes.  The west side of the resort is primarily beginner slopes and is appropriate for first time skiers.  As the resort move east you come upon Center Village, where most of the slopes are tree lined and are appropriate for the intermediate skier.  Finally, the eastern part of the mountain is most appropriate for advanced skiers.  Depending on your skiing ability, you can focus on any part of the mountain without much traversing.

Copper’s Woodward facility offers and indoor training facility for terrain park and half-pipe progression.
