Reasons to Visit Copper Mountain

Copper Mountain Colorado

Copper Mountain Resort was busy all summer putting in and updating 2 chairlifts just in time for the 2018-2019 ski season. The chair updates will increase the distribution of skiers around the mountain much more efficiently and provide direct access to the top from Center Village. The resort is a great place for families with children as it has tubing, ice skating on West Lake and many fun events! Copper Mountain is also home to Copper Woodward, a progression training facility which also hosts camps during the summer and winter.
