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.
The US Dollar (USD) is the unit of currency and is divided into
100 cents. Only major banks exchange foreign currency. ATMs are
widespread and credit cards and travellers cheques are widely
accepted. Travellers cheques should be taken in US Dollars to avoid
hassles. Banking hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm.
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.
There are shops located throughout the villages of the Copper
Mountain holiday resort selling a variety of ski and snowboarding
gear, clothing, jewellery and souvenirs. The Mountain Adventure
Center rents and sells equipment and outwear for adults and
children. Copper Mountain Sports is the number one rental store to
demo out some new skis while on holiday, as well as handling tuning
and waxing requirements. MTN Beach brings the surf to the mountain
with popular lifestyle brands such as Quiksilver and Billabong
clothing for sale. The Copper Clothing Company will provide all the
holiday memorabilia necessary or alternatively, just for gifts.
Metals Rock sells a range of jewellery and watches and The Rocky
Mountain Chocolate Factory is a must for chocoholics in Copper
Mountain, with a variety of chocolate infused eats and drinks.
