Projects include the new Rocky Mountain Coaster, three new dining options, and three new chairlifts. Learn more about these projects here.
Copper is best known for its naturally-divided terrain, allowing skiers and riders to enjoy the mountain at their own pace. Whether it’s a day, a week or years spent at the resort, Copper provides a comfortable and laid-back atmosphere for all.
The Tucker Mountain Snowcat
Jump on the snowcat for a free ride to experience Tucker Mountain, a 273-acre non-lift accessed area at Copper. Tucker is notorious for hanging onto powder stashes days after a storm. Let the cat take you up to the ridgeline then hike to some of the best in-bounds terrain in Colorado. Skiing and riding on Tucker is the closest thing to a backcountry experience you'll ever find inside any resort.
Tucker Mountain is recommended for expert skiers and riders only. The terrain is rated expert to extreme. The Tucker Mountain Snowcat picks up passengers near the base of the Blackjack lift in Copper Bowl on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays 10am - 1:30pm. (weather and condition dependent)
