Copper Mountain Ski Resort Terrain

Copper Mountain has 2,465 skiable acres and would have to be one of the easiest mountains to navigate for skiers and snowboarders thanks to its ideally laid-out naturally divided terrain. Working from West Village to East Village you have a family and beginner terrain area located above West Village. Moving across to Center Village the terrain at the bottom half is intermediate and as you go across to East Village the terrain steepens into black runs. Up high, as you would expect, is the more advanced and extreme terrain.

Experienced skiers are going to love skiing and riding Copper Mountain. Especially the upper mountain and back bowls, especially when you factor in the cat skiing rides that are free. Yes, that’s right two free snowcats provide free access to Copper Bowl and Tucker Mountain.

Weather permitting during the winter season, the snowcats run Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. The cat picks up guests above the base of the Mountain Chief chairlift, accessible by American Flyer to Rendezvous chairlifts.
