Full review

After a long day of travel we finally arrived in Copper Mtn at 5pm on a Monday. The family, to include kids, were exhausted but ready to explore the Mill Club and the village and grab a bite to eat. We then went back to the room to get ready for bed since part of the family had an all day private ski school planned for the next morning. As soon as we were sound asleep we were awakened by the loud voices and dj and music at the bar below at 11:30. The college students and others were not only in the bar but out on the streets as if it were a street party until 2:15 in the morning. This went on for several nights. We called guest services each night of the intolerable loud noise to request security to come. The noise was so loud you could hear with earplugs in. We even asked to be moved to a different room. Needless to say there was not another room available and we had to endure this for 3 of the 5 nights. This is why I scored Copper Mtn low for family. Other than this nuisance, the vacation was wonderful. We had to overlook the lack of sleep and noise to enjoy our vacation since security and guest services was unable to do anything about. Mill Club 309 was beautiful and well decorated. The views were gorgeous from the room and the mountain. The mountain was setup for the advanced skier as well as the beginner and the slopes were groomed nicely each night. I would recommend a beeline pass for the lift lines if you come during peak season. We had beeline passes during the non peak season but definitely needed during late afternoon with the large number of students there. The restaurants were average but Chubs had yummy crepes. Not sure if I would return just due to the fact that there is no guarantee that we would not book the same week as hundereds of college students.
