Copper Mountain Ski Area
► Alpine ski area
Copper Mountain is a unique resort with terrain that is naturally divided into beginner, intermediate, and expert areas, each located on different parts of the mountain and each generally served by its own lifts.
The beginner terrain is located in the West Village, where you will find the Schoolhouse, the meeting area for all child and adult ski school. From the village you can take Woodward Express for eight unique beginner runs, or take Kokomo Express for the most beginner option taking Roundabout back down for quick runs.
Intermediate skiers have incredible options that mostly start from the Center Village. Located directly in the middle of the resort, Amerianc Eagle lift is a 6-seater tha provides immediate options to get your runs in, including Main Vein which is located directly under the lift. There are four main runs that you can do from that lift, but from there, if you go over to Excellerator lift, there are ten more runs that await you on the east side of the mountain. Finally, there are seven intermediate runs on the west side of the mountain as well that will require you to take American Flyer from the Center Village.
The main area for advanced and expert skiing starts in the East village, where Super Bee lift will take you to many options. To the south of that lift are multiple bowls and incredible expert terrain, but if you prefer great advanced options you may want to take Collage or Andy's Encore, both intermediate runs, down to the Alpine lift where you will find many additional advanced options.
► Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing
Copper Mountain supports skinning by actually offering uphill tours in a safe and non-threatening environment. It is great for those who have never skinned before or if you just want a great cardio workout with a 1,000 vertical feet ascent! Note that this is an all-day activity from 9:30a-3p. There are also multiple cross-country trails that start from the west village for those who don't want a guided experience.
Snowshoers will be glad to know that there are two separate free snowshoeing tours available Friday-Sunday. The morning tour is more physically demanding and you must be at least 15 years old, but families can go together in the afternoon tours (must be 8 years old to join). The tours are free, but you will need to rent shoes (unless you bring your own).
