Copper Summer Activities

Spend your summer days with Copper. Race around Summit County’s only go kart track, take a rugged scooter on the hill, jump for joy on our bungee jump or invoke your inner Happy Gilmore on our mini golf course. We’ve got fun covered!

Free Lift Rides*

We’re taking you to the top. For free*. Copper Mountain is offering free round-trip rides on the American Eagle chairlift. Copper is the only resort in County to offer free chairlift rides, available from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. everyday, weather permitting. Guests are asked to visit Guest Services in the Village at Copper to pick up their free round-trip ticket on the American Eagle.

* Free with $10 purchase in the Copper Village. You may think it’s spending $10 anywhere in the village to get a free chairlift ride. But it’s spending $10 on something awesome and then riding the chairlift for free. Subject to change.
