Head over Fremont Pass for a great day of skiing at Copper Mountain. Not to be confused with neighboring Ski Cooper, Copper offers 2,465 acres of terrain, 23 lifts, and more than 140 trails. With an average of 300 inches of snow each year, it’s no wonder Copper Mountain is considered one of Summit County’s favorite ski resorts.
Copper Mountain is known for its naturally divided terrain, where peaks separate beginner, intermediate, and advanced runs. Wide open bowls funnel into skiable glades, and blue and green runs end at a pedestrian-only village that offers shopping, dining, and lodging. Copper Mountain has a dedicated learn-to-ski zone for those hitting the slopes for the first time. It also has a tubing hill and skating rink for family members who prefer not to ski. Daredevils need to check out Copper’s world-renowned Woodward Copper, an indoor sports training center with trampolines, jumps, and foam pits. It’s the perfect place to master tricks before taking them to the mountain.
