Copper Mountain - Vacation Rentals & Ski Lodging

Copper Mountain’s resort and all that it has to offer is divided into three different villages: East Village, The Village at Copper (also known as Center Village) and West Village. Located in the heart of Colorado’s high-country, this all inclusive mountain resort was designed with different skier abilities in mind so that everyone that visits will be able to take full advantage of its powder covered slopes.

The town itself, while smaller than your usual mountain resort, still has many of the activities and amenities that visitors like to take advantage of during their winter getaways. 280 inches (710 centimeters) will allow you to ski and snowboard on the same terrain that the U.S. Ski Team enjoys for their downhill training. There is also the Alpine Rush Zipline, the Tubing Hill and ice skating to enjoy during the winter season. And, don’t forget about Critterland, a fun place that kids and parents can go to enjoy this winter wonderland together. During the summer months, hiking, mountain biking and zip-lining are all fun activities to take advantage of.

Of course, if you’re looking for refinements such as spa treatments and shopping, you’re in luck. Copper Mountain Spa & Athletic Club will have you feeling rejuvenated and ready to hit the town. Enjoy a relaxing massage to loosen up those tight muscles or pamper yourself with a facial designed to combat the stresses of high altitude. For those looking to do a little shopping (or a lot), Copper Mountain has newly opened stores that cater to both men and women, with new stores opening each season.

As far as dining is concerned, be sure to check out JJ’s Rocky Mountain Tavern, a turn-of-the-century tavern based on the legacies of JJ and Molly Brown. Their slow smoked barbecue is sure to satisfy even the pickiest of palettes. C.B. Grille is a more elegant and refined dining selection for when you’re feeling like taking the time to enjoy the finer things, including their scrumptious mountain cuisine. And, of course, no winter resort is complete without a good après ski. You can head on over to Jack’s or JJ’s Rocky Mountain Tavern to enjoy a few cocktails and some delicious appetizers after a day on the slopes.

Corresponding to the layout of the town, the ski slopes are laid out in an easily navigable manner, with Union Creek and the beginner slopes on the western side of the mountain, high-speed quad lifts and the intermediate slopes in the center of the mountain and advanced and expert terrain sitting on the eastern most side of the mountain. For those skiers and snowboarders looking for a challenge, Copper Peak and Union Peak, both measuring above 12,000 feet (3,658 meters), feature double black-diamond runs. This is where you can find the four expert level only bowls - Copper Bowl, Resolution Bowl, Spaulding Bowl and Union Bowl.

The mountain itself has a peak elevation of 12,313 feet (3,753 meters) and a vertical drop of 2,601 feet (793 meters). The 126 runs span 2,465 skiable acres (998 hectares), with runs designated as 21% for beginners, 25% for intermediate levels, 36% for advanced skiers and snowboarders and 18% for experts. All runs are accessible via the 22 lifts the Copper Mountain offers.
