Dining at copper
Dining was very nice in copper central village. Food was well prepared.
Family togetherness at Copper
A great place for a family with different skiing abilities. we were able to divide up (black, green, blue runs) and easily reconnect for lunch or apres ski. Lots of good food at the restaurants
Not crowded, great family atmosphere. Perfect place for our girls first ski trip.
A great place to take your family!
Copper Mountain We arrived after the MLK long weekend and had the mountain to ourselves. We signed all 3 kids up for ski lessons and the instructors were great. My 3 year was scared to go to his lesson but we were able to reschedule him for the next day after he got used to the idea. The mountain had enough variety for our family from our 15 year old who wanted to tear up the mountain to my 6 year old daughter who loved the green runs. The dining was great as well in the village and we had fun skating on the pond and going on the toboggan run. I would definitely recommend Copper Mountain for a family ski trip. Here's a video I made of the trip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shrRQ7UKNO0&t=498s
really nice apt
our apt was really nice and on the lake for skating, great agent too, near the slopes
So much better than I thought
Copper was such a blast. Every local we came across let us know that Copper was the place to go in colorado. It truly was so much fun. Not that many people in your way, they hosted the Gran Prix while we were there, which was pretty neat. The only thing I wish they had was night skiing.
It was all great. Great price for everything. No complaints. The only suggestion is for the daycare to take the kids outside. I asked why they couldn't, and they said "high numbers". My little ones still saw snow with us sledding but that is the only suggestion I have.
great mountain for all levels. very economical compared to many of the other facilities I checked on before booking this. friendly staff and lifts are good. upbeat atmosphere with plenty of places to eat. we didn't eat out as we had a kitchen in our condo. the grocery store is adequate for simple stuff so we got by quite well.

Awesome place! Family friendly!
The covered bridge neighborhood is the heart of Copper! Everything you could need or want was within a 3 minute walk! We stayed in Tucker Mtn Lodge, 2 bedroom condo, literally 200 yards to the American Eagle lift. Two families, 2 kids, units are a bit small, but location location location!! We NEVER MOVED the rental car from when we parked! Great restaurants from CB's (a little more formal) to Endo's (GREAT wings and burgers and of course cold beer!) Don't miss the Crepe store! Honestly best place we have stayed and skied in Colorado. Love Vail, Breck's awesome - Copper is special. Very reasonably priced, only sticker shock was the $48 lunch over at ski school -- wife and I had two bowls of soup, 2 bottles water and crackers, chicken fingers (3) and fries! YIKES. Ate at CB's for $75 including wine!
Would not hesitate going back!! Highly recommend!
Great skiing experience!
The slopes & lifts were excellent. All the staff we encountered were pleasant and helpful. Weather was great and the facilities were excellent as well.
Best Vacation Ever!!
We stayed at the Lodge at Copper and we were NOT disappointed! What a great family vacation. With the ski in and ski out, great accommodations, super friendly and helpful staff we will sure return to this resort! Again we loved everything about this place and the ski conditions were just a bonus!
Easy to navigate
The resort is easy to navigate and there's some good mixed terrain.

Best family vacation ever!
This was a pre-Christmas gift to our family. (We traveled from SC with 3 young adults)Only my son had skied out west. The planning was done for us! Everything was perfect, especially the weather (lots of snow!) Cooper was not only easily accessible for someone from SC who knew nothing about driving in the snow, but everywhere we went the people were helpful and friendly. Our family had different levels of skiers and the slopes of choice were there for us. I never had to wait in the lift lines more than 1-2 minutes. We plan to return in the future. Great food at Copper Mt. and in near-by Frisco(Cutest little town ever). Thanks Copper Mt. for making this a memorable family vacation!

Fun mountain to ski, but watch your skis
My husband and I spent 5 days skiing at Copper Mountain over the holidays. Being the early season they could have used some more snow but many of the open runs were quite long, unfortunately the bowls were closed. We were staying at Center Village and could have brought our skis to the condo locker during lunch , however one day we were lazy and left them out at the base ski racks and someone stole my husbands skis in the 30-45 minutes we were eating lunch. When we reported this to security we were the 5th person to report stolen skis that day. A couple of days later we went to Monarch, a small local resort near my husband's hometown and there were warnings everywhere to not leave your skis out unlocked and the rental shop told him not to leave the demo skis he was renting unattended. There seems to be an increase in equipment in Colorado, possibly due to the economy. Copper probably does not want to warn people with a lot of signage because of the negative PR impact, my husband's cousin who lives in Denver always splits his skis up when he stops for a break. My skis are pretty old so there probably is not much of a market for them but when I buy a new pair I will definitely get a lock.

What a weekend
Only being able to travel out west once a year I usually don't ski the same resort twice, but I'm going to have to make Copper the exception next year. An unexpected business trip afforded me the opportunity to hit the slopes for a weekend and I discovered a place with reasonable prices, easy access from I-70, slow lifts - but short lines, loooooong cruisers and deep snow. Even though I only skied two days, I saw enough that I'm sure my entire family would have something to enjoy and it was all within walking distance to my reasonably priced and roomy condo. Next season, while my 8 year old son and I tear up the blue runs while doing laps on the Timberline chair, I'm sure my 4 year old will enjoy her introduction to skiing in the large beginner area under the Kokoma and Lumberjack chairs all while my non-skiing wife can leisurely enjoy her spa treatments. I can hardly wait.

A Great Way to Spend New Years Eve!
I met my good friend at Copper Mountain a few days before New Years this year. The skiing was great. Everyone was so friendly. All of the restaurants and bars were walking distance. We had a wonderful time.
