The naturally divided terrain of Copper Mountain makes it a favorite with Denver locals and international visitors alike. From the easy greens of the West Village base to the intermediate delights of Center Village across to the park and ride black runs off East Village, mother nature has defiantly set up Copper Mountain as a well laid out resort experience.
With over 2400 acres of skiable terrain and a vertical drop of 2,601 feet (793 meters) and a base elevation of 9,712 feet (2,946 meters) climbing up to a dizzying summit elevation height of 12,313 feet (3,767 m), Copper definitely delivers on its promise and trademark catch cry – Raised On Colorado.
Copper enjoys a long season generally from November to April with 305 inches (7.74 m) with March often its snowiest month making for great spring skiing conditions. It’s a mountain that’s fun to move around because everything is so well laid out. The lower mountain has great fall-line ski runs cut into the trees. The upper mountain is high above the three-line making for challenging bowl skiing with everything you can imagine from chutes, glades and open bowls.
