Copper Mountain


Copper Mountain offers 2,465 acres of naturally divided terrain catering to all skill levels. Advanced and expert guests enjoy Copper’s challenging bowls, free snowcat accessed terrain and Woodward Copper Barn, a 19,400 square foot action sports training facility. Generous beginner terrain and award-winning instructors at Copper Ski and Ride School cater to first-time and novice visitors. While Copper is best known for its world-class skiing and snowboarding terrain, guests also enjoy the resort’s intimate, pedestrian-only villages which offer restaurants, family-friendly activities, shopping and comfortable lodging, all within walking distance to the lifts. 

Copper is currently undergoing $20 million in capital improvements that are designed to hold true to its philosophy of being local at the core with refreshing Raised on Colorado experiences. Projects include the new Rocky Mountain Coaster, three new dining options, and three new chairlifts. Learn more about these projects here.

Best Known For

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)
