Copper Mountain is conveniently located off of Interstate 70 at exit 195. Just 75 miles (or about 2 hours) west of Denver and 20 miles (30 minutes) east of Vail, Copper Mountain is easily accessible from both Denver International Airport (DIA) and Eagle County Airport (EGE). I-70 can be a headache to travel on in the winter season, so check out our resort & county transportation options here.
