Reviews for Copper Mountain
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
At approximately 2:30 pm Feb 17th i put my new skis on the front portion of the metal ski rack directly adjacent to the tall wooden speaker tower at the base of the ski village (2nd tower from the left)
Nordica Enforcer 94 Skis - Men's - 2021/2022 172 CM.
They had a pair of bright red poles attached. 20 minutes later I came back and they were gone. I walked all the racks for 1/2 hr thinking it might have been a mistake.
I filed a report at the lost and found. The mountain staff were of little help or had little concern. I know there's not much chance of recovery but they were brand new and my first pair of new skis in 20 years. I called two different offices trying to get help and was put off as an inconvenience.
I know there are cameras in the near vicinicty but the resort didn't seem to want to try and help. Kind of pathetic. I live in NM and ski Taos all the time and they hate that sort of thing happening and go after it aggressively. Who knows...maybe I'll get lucky here.

From an excellent ski school to huge and varied terrain for all levels of skiers from easy greens to exceptional off piste experiences Copper offers a wonderful experience for the occasional/beginner skier to the all mountain expert with instructors ready and able to support all levels. I'm surprised that it isn't rated in the top 5 on the "On The Snow" list, but maybe that's because Vail is an advertiser.

I spent a fair amount at Copper Mountain. I think it’s fantastic. It meets the needs of many different skier levels, and the way they have the mountain laid out, keeps the experts and beginners, somewhat separated..... Full Review
Great resort. Second favorite in Colorado behind Breckenridge. There isn't a resort with better groomed terrain in the country that I've visited... Full Review
Copper is flat out the best mountain in Colorado. The vibe is unreal and the park is the holy grail of jumps and features. The back bowls are ridiculous and will blow your mind. Filled to the brim with the some of the ur best steeps and trees you’ll ever encounter, the back bowls alone make copper my favorite Colorado mountain. The tourists have tainted this great establishment a bit though and they clog the lift lines and straight up don’t know how to drive. Overall, 10/10 destination ... Full Review
The best terrain park in the USA. They offer everything 22' pipe, 13' pipe, boardercross, jumps of all sizes, and more rails than any other mtn I've been to. They are really dedicated to progression in the parks. As well as having the Woodward barn to learn even more skills. While other resorts seem to be scaling back their parks, copper seems to be pushing for more parks and progression. Best Park In Colorado!... Full Review
It's my third year at copper now and as much I like the intermediate terrain and the occasional deep powder, it's not worth all the traffic and time wasting logistics. The free parking lot is very far away and you waste at least 30 min getting from there to the main lifts. I came here during 2021 Dec and it was a shit show. I couldn't even pay for the closer parking lots because they required a reservation. My friend took a group beginner ski lesson and she said it barely went over anything and they didn't even hop on the chair lift. The group was way larger than 5 people. Seems like just a quick way to charge 150 a day for a group of beginners. The resort is also pretty dead at night and the super pricy lodging I paid for was meh. Coming here was very expensive but the experience was subpar. Whoever is managing the logistics needs to look at the pain points and figure out a solution. ... Full Review
Copper has consistently been one of my favorite ski areas, with and easy to navigate lift lines, good people, and incredible terrain for all levels. Many of the reviews that I have been seeing about lifelines at copper, are frankly dumb. The key is to get on the slopes early, leave early if you would like, considering terrain can go downhill after lunch rush, which is another thing you want to avoid. Just eating from 10-12 or 2-3 can prevent major lift lines once everyone is back on the mountain, and can make for some awesome runs. Avoid weekends if you can, and park early, or feel free to sit in long lines, and write another review, but overall I believe copper deserves a five star review…... Full Review
Terrible service. Broke my tibia while skiing, snow patrol was perfect, but at the clínic people were not helpful ( except for the emergency care guy) or nice. Had me signing papers and repeating the same things over and over . Pain medication didn't help. Had to go to my room at the lodging jumping the stairs on one foot. Each step left me in pain and exhausted. Not a wheel chair available and the clínic won't lend them. They didn"t let my car get into the parking lot ( where I could have used the elevator).At the end they agreed to let the car in and I was wheeled out in a luggage cart. BtW the skis bindings were not for beginners, as I asked, and didnt release. That was one of the reason's why mi leg was fractured. Told the guys at the rental and they didn't asume any responsability and wouldn't give the money of the remaining days back. Also the resort didn"t give us the refund of the unused tickets. Really?? A ski resort without wheelchairs?? I had a really bad time. Have been to vail's clinic in another ocassion, it was a completely different experience... Full Review
