Copper Mountain, CO Skiing & Snowboarding
Located in the heart of the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Copper Mountain boasts 140 ski runs across its almost 2500 acres. Copper is a great alternative to nearby Breckenridge with less crowds, fewer lines, and loads of varied terrain for all levels of skiers and riders. One of its main features is its naturally divided terrain – there’s a run for everyone. Beginners can head over to the west side for easier runs, while experienced skiers can ski the intermediate and advanced runs in the center and eastern side of the resort.
Copper also features incredible perks like free snowcat access to Tucker Mountain for expert skiers, free parking, and the free Summit Country bus system that can take you into Frisco or Breckenridge. These freebies combined with the lower lift ticket prices will make your trip to Copper much easier on the wallet.
Don’t jump on the bus too quick though – Copper Mountain’s base village has some great apres ski hangouts that rival Breckenridge. Try out the happy hour at cozy local dives like Jack’s Slopeside Bar and Grill, and Incline’s.

Copper Mountain is a unique resort that has something for everyone. The terrain is naturally divided into beginner, intermediate, and expert areas. The areas are located on different parts of the mountain and each is generally served by its own lifts. The result is that beginners aren’t intimidated by fast-moving experts and advanced skiers aren’t held up by slower beginners.
Copper Mountain has almost 2,500 acres of skiable terrain supporting 126 trails. Experts love the deep powder stashes on the mountain’s wide open back bowl area.
