Easy to get to from Denver
Kind of steep, considering
My husband and I visited Copper last season because we had the Rocky Mountain Super Pass and had never skied there before. The particular weekend we flew up there was unseasonably cold and the mountain did not have much snow. Only a few slopes were open and only two green (which is where we always start to get warmed up). Well the green slope was so steep (for a green) that we were afraid to try anything more difficult. They have a great superpipe there and the weekend we visited Shawn White was making an appearance and the couple of slopes that were open were crowded with beginning snowboarders. Not the best time we have had skiing.
