About Copper Mountain:
Copper Mountain is consistently voted the “Locals Favorite” Mountain in Summit County (which includes, Breckenridge, Keystone and A-Basin). The locals know a thing or two. The base village at Copper is small, and the mountain is big so there are fewer skiers than neighboring resorts. Vail (frequently the #1 Mountain in North America) is a mere 25 minutes west on I-70. Copper has a relaxed atmosphere, great skiing in the back bowls, some awesome tree skiing (ask locals to guide you to the good stuff), excellent terrain parks, a world-class half-pipe and predictable snow (it is the HQ of the US National Race Team and most early season race camps are held here). The U.S Forestry Service has described Copper as the best ski mountain in America. Copper Mountain has been voted “Best All-Around Mountain” by Outside Traveler Magazine. Known as the “Local’s Favorite,” Copper Mountain is the largest ski and snowboard resort in Summit County. It is also the only ski resort that features naturally separated terrain, allowing beginners, intermediates and experts to ski on their own distinct areas of the mountain. Its central location, just 75 miles from Denver International Airport (situated between Breckenridge & Keystone to the east and Vail to the west) makes it an ideal location. All three of these other ski areas are within a 30 minute drive from Copper Mountain.
Local activities (on-site or nearby) include: Hiking, Rock Climbing, Biking, Golf, Tennis, Racquetball, Fitness Center and Spa, Gym, Fishing, Wildlife Viewing, Horseback Riding, Shopping, Restaurants, Sightseeing, Swimming, Sailing, Rafting, Downhill Skiing, Cross-country Skiing, Snowmobiling, Sledding. The summers are just as beautiful as the winter.
