long runs, terrain park, big bowls, EVERYTHING
pain in the ass to move horizontally across the mountain
I found Copper to be awesome. Much much better than any small resort, and certainly competes with Breck and Tahoe. They have everything you can ski/board there; big bowls, long runs (beginning up to expert), etc. One bad part about it though, is that if you are at the bottom of the mountain, it is downright impossible to get over to another side of the mountain or even a different mountain in the resort. Even if you ski down and are 100 feet away from the lift, you still have to take off your skis and hike. Everything is sloped the wrong way if you need to move anywhere but down. However, the place is very family friendly, I didn't find it to be too crowded at any time of the year, and it has a great village at the bottom. Overall, great resort!
