Welcome to Copper Mountain

Copper Mountain

Copper Mountain is the largest holiday resort, in terms of area, in the whole of Summit County Colorado. The resort, owned by Intrawest, which also owns Winter Park (Colorado), Mammoth (California) and Whistler-Blackcomb (B.C, Canada), is an incredibly popular holiday destination and noted especially for its varying terrain and diverse runs. Copper Mountain has three villages filled with shops, restaurants, bars and a variety of accommodation. The Village at Copper is the centre of the holiday resort and most of the action takes place around here. The East Village and Union Creek (on the west side of Copper Mountain) have fewer restaurants and shops. A few years back, Intrawest put a lot of money into the upgrading of the villages, with massive amounts of construction aiding to bring up the standard and reputation to where it stands today. Copper Mountain is now one of the most popular holiday resorts in the whole of Colorado and continues to attract visitors from within the United States and worldwide.

Information & Facts


There is plenty to do for all ages at Copper Mountain holiday resort. Snow-shoeing, snow-mobiling, tubing, ice skating, even sleigh rides make up for some of the alternative snow based activities, but away from the cold there is the après-ski Hot Springs Tour to relax the muscles in some of Colorado's geothermal springs, or even the Copper Mountain Athletic Club to give them a further workout. Other sports include broomball or curling to get into the spirit of social team-oriented competition. Throughout the summer holiday months, Copper Mountain offers golfing and hiking as well as mountain biking.

English is the most common language but Spanish is often spoken in south-western states.

Copper Mountain can get very busy over the Christmas and New Year holiday period and over Spring Break.


Although not the best holiday resort for a night out in the region, Copper has a few bars and clubs that will be sure to meet après-ski needs. Pravda, a Russian-styled vodka bar offering 30 types of vodka, lots of cheap drinks, stays open late and almost always turns into a great party. Endo's Adrenaline Café has drink specials in the afternoon and usually hosts some live music in the evenings. JJ's Rocky Mountain Tavern, a prospector styled bar, often draws the holiday crowds over happy hour in the afternoon, inevitably lingering on later for a beer-filled follow up throughout the evening.


While on holiday in the Copper Mountain resort, there is something for every taste and most of it is reasonably priced. In The Village at Copper, Jack's Slopeside Grill offers a healthy start to the day with nutritional breakfasts, salads and sandwiches. Traditional restaurants include the Imperial Palace, which prepares Taiwanese and Szechuan dishes for lunches and dinners, or McGillycuddy's Celtic style pub, a great restaurant for families on holiday. In the East Village, Double Diamond flames up a grill of burgers and steaks and the Grand Hall Market offers bargains on pizzas, beers and Kids Eatz meals. On the mountain there are secluded spots such as the Flyers Soup Shack for a quiet barbeque, or snacks at the multi-level deck T-Rex Grill or Solitude Station BBQ. There are more options outside of the holiday resort in the towns of Dillon and Frisco.
