About Copper Mountain Ski Area

The terrain at Copper is naturally devided from easy to difficult. Most of the beginner terrain is on the right side of the resort looking at trail map or far skier-left. On the opposite skier-right side of resort would be the black dimaond runs.

There is some hike-to terrain from the top of the back bowls where you can get some serious lines on powder days. Copper offers free Snow Cat rides to even greater powder on certain days during the season.

The trees at Copper are pretty good, and are better on the back side of the mountain. Beginners will find plenty of blues and greens cruisers to lap.


Copper Mountain is just 75 miles from Denver with 2,465 acres of skiable terrain and a village that feels more like a neighborhood. Copper's guests enjoy steps away lodging, après ski entertainment, naturally divided terrain, exciting events and a welcoming, knowledgeable staff.
