Copper Mountain, CO Winter Sports
Conveniently located just 1.5 hours from Denver off I-70, Copper Mountain boasts 140 ski runs across its almost 2500 acres. Copper is a great alternative to the nearby (albeit larger) Breckenridge Ski Resort with less crowds, fewer lines, and loads of varied terrain for all levels of skiers and riders. One of Copper’s biggest differentiators is its naturally divided terrain. Beginners can start at the west side of the mountain on easier runs, while experienced skiers and riders can ski the intermediate and advanced runs in the center and east side of the resort.
Some of the other standouts at Copper are free snowcat access to Tucker Mountain for expert skiers, free parking, and the free Summit County bus system that runs to both Frisco and Breckenridge. These deals and the lower ticket prices at Copper make it a resort that is easier on your wallet. Before you jump on the bus after an exciting day exploring Copper, check out the base village which 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 Bar & Grill.
