Copper Mountain is well designed and unique in its approach to skiers, from its naturally divided terrain and world-class terrain parks and halfpipes, to its many low-key restaurants and bars, lodging options and family-friendly attractions. Skiing at Copper Mountain will impress just about any level of boarder/skier, from first timer to expert, young to old, to those on a budget or those wanting a little more luxury. Many the restaurants and accommodations at Copper are generally in the more affordable range, rather than luxury, ensuring that Coppers fantastic experiences are maintained for everyone.

Copper Mountain is conveniently located right off the I-70 West from Denver, just about 2 hours away and offers a natural division into sections based on difficulty of terrain. Almost the entirety on the right-West Village area of the mountain is designated for beginner or timid and novice skiers, the more central area above the Village centre is geared for intermediates and the runs above the East Village (furthest to the left on a piste map) are nearly all black and steep runs. All the area above the treeline to the left and bowl skiing is expert to extreme terrain, with the exception of Otto Bahn, the lone blue run in Copper Bowl.Thus it makes it very easy to get around and not get stuck on an impossible slope you cannot get down on.As a result the C in Copper also stands for Convenience.

Beginners, especially first time skiers, have their own area that allows for perfect progression from the magic carpet and relatively flat slopes, to small chairlifts with slightly longer and more inclined trails and so on, all the way to green trails from the top of Union Peak to the base area. Intermediates also have incredible access, from top to bottom pristine pistes to cruise down, to the Otto Bahn easy blue run's breathtaking views of the expansive Copper Bowl and Tucker Mountain. Expert and advanced ski areas makes up 54 percent of the skiable terrain at Copper with the mountain offering expert skiers and snowboarders four bowls, acres and acres of high alpine extreme terrain, technical glades, many moguls and long, sustained black runs.For pure skiing and snowboarding from experts to novices, it really is hard to beat anywhere, when coupled with over 12m of snow every year.

In 2009, Woodward at Copper was developed at the resort as an on- and off-snow training facility for terrain park and halfpipe progression. The on-snow programme at Woodwards and trampoline/ramp barn, will please gravity-defying winter sports enthusiasts, providing yet another reason to ski Copper. Affordable,Awesome and Appealing, this triple A resort could appeal to you and your group or family, more than anywhere else, especially if more on a budget but yet wanting some of the best skiing America can offer.
