God, I love this place! Since different levels of skiing are located separated from each other, there's no chance your beginner will find themselves on a black run, and vice versa. Great transportation system - never waited more than a couple of minutes for the shuttle. The resort is not too big, not too small, but with the variety that comes with big and the friendliness that comes with small. They even bought back a lift ticket when someone in our group accidentally bought an extra one. The best part was the lift lines. Our week at Copper included the Saturday morning avalance across highway 40 which blocked access to Winter Park, so we expected big crowds. While there were more people for sure, the longest lift line was 10 minutes.
We have no desire to ski anywhere else. Copper was awesome!
