If you have different levels of skiers in your group, you have no easy way to stay together because the mountain is naturally divided into terrain ranging from super-easy to expert-level. For newbies, the grooming is marginal at best. Dining on the mountain isn't the best but we don't go skiing to eat. Still, staying in the village really limits your choices and it can be pretty noisy at night as well. We also took lessons from the ski school and were very disappointed with the professionalism of the staff. We'll not go back to Copper.
