Copper Mountain’s offerings surpass skiing and snowboarding with mountains of off the hill adventures including an electric village atmosphere that comes alive when the lifts stop turning and the sun goes down. 

 

True Intimate Mountain Pedestrian-Only Village

While Copper is best known for its world-class skiing and snowboarding terrain, guests also enjoy the resort’s intimate, pedestrian-only village which offers restaurants, family-friendly activities, shopping and comfortable lodging, all within walking distance of the lifts. The village design allows guests to enjoy their ski vacation without ever having to get back on the highway, and Copper’s convenient location in Summit County – just 75 miles west of Denver –provides easy access from Denver Airport (DIA).
