Copper is an all-inclusive mountain resort in the heart of the Rockies. Designed with different skier abilities in mind, Copper is laid out in an easy-to-understand pattern: the ski area features beginner slopes on the western side of the mountain, intermediate slopes in the center, and expert terrain on the eastern side.
Advanced “double black diamond” slopes are located on the two peaks above 12,000 feet (Copper and Union Peaks), including four expert-only bowls: Copper Bowl, Union Bowl, Spaulding Bowl, and Resolution Bowl. Similarly, the town layout corresponds to the mountain design: East Village primarily accesses the expert terrain on the northeast face of the mountain, Union Creek is best for beginner terrain, and Center Village provides access to the high speed quad lifts that can bring you anywhere you want to go.
Copper Mountain's 2,465 acres of skiable terrain is easily accessible to skiers and boarders of all skill levels. Take one of the 22 lifts up the mountain, and find your favorite run down – there are 126 options to pick from! With a summit over 12,000 feet, Copper has access to some great backcountry style skiing. Join one of Copper’s “Resort Ambassadors” for a free tour of the mountain, and feel free to ask any and all questions to these Ambassadors about the town, the mountain’s terrain, the restaurants, the surrounding environment, and anything else you can think of asking.

If you vacation to Keystone, Breckenridge or Copper Mountain, you’ve got to visit the Frisco Adventure Park. Located just a couple miles off exit 201 (or exit 203), the Frisco Adventure Park has both winter and summer set-ups that are convenient, fun and for the most part FREE! *Fortunately, this park is often overlooked by locals who head to, well, Keystone, Breckenridge or Copper Mountain to do some of the same activities!
The park is about 15 minutes away from Keystone, about 10 minutes from Breckenridge, and also about 10 minutes from Copper. If you are driving up to Vail, Beaver Creek, Aspen or Snowmass, the Adventure Park is a great stop along the drive that is just off the highway and can give you the chance to stretch your legs with, say, 18 holes of disc golf!
The Park is located alongside Lake Dillon, which creates a unique atmosphere not found in most mountain towns. You can spend the morning boating on the water, and then head over to the Adventure Park for a bike ride! The lake also creates some great contrast with the mountains, which seem to shoot out of the water.
In the summer, the park offers the following activities:
- Bike Park
- Skateboard Park
- Disc Golf Course
- Baseball Field
- Multi-purpose Field
The park in the summer also provides access to plenty of hiking/biking trails that are open to the public.
In the winter, the park is used for:
- Ski and Snowboard Terrain Park
While the park has fewer activities in the winter, tubing tends to draw big crowds for those looking to do something different.
My perfect day: Spend the morning downhill mountain biking in Breckenridge, then heading over to the Frisco Adventure Park for 18 challenging Disc Golf. Well that’s my local’s tip for Tuesday, hope you enjoyed it and hope you can find your way to the Frisco Adventure Park soon!
