Welcome to Copper Mountain -
Where the skiers ski and the boarders ride!


The Resort:


Copper Mountain is located toward the westernmost edge of Summit County six miles from Frisco, and 75 miles west of Denver along Interstate 70. It has a long history and was originally known by the name of Wheeler in its days as a mining town. Nothing of any note remains from those days and Copper is now a purpose built resort town. The base village has been transformed over the last few years with a $500 million improvement plan, and is set to improve still further as the development work continues over the next few years. This has made the "New" village at Copper a nicely layed out village with a great feel and is easy to get around, and nothing is more than a couple of minutes walk from the lifts and slopes.

Copper has always been known as a skiers mountain. The main reasons for this are its size (larger than Breckenridge), its natural division of the terrain which separates skiers by ability purely based on the natural landscape, its long steep bump runs and its wide open above treeline bowls. To add to this Copper can now boast an excellent base area and new lifts eliminating known bottlenecks of the past.

With its new base area upgrade, Copper has improved what was already an excellent selection of shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and night spots, and is capable of providing for the needs of even the most demanding or discerning clientele.
