A genuine all-rounder, Copper Mountain’s award-winning trail system has distinct sections for each ability.

This longstanding locals’ favourite has emerged on the international ski market, thanks to a huge amount of investment in the past two decades. Snow quality is reliably good, and the transfer from Denver only takes two hours but what really stands out is the trail system.

Naturally divided-up, Copper Mountain has three distinct sections for different abilities. If you’re a beginner, you can ski top-to-bottom greens, while intermediates have a superb network of blues, and advanced skiers have double black diamonds in the Spaulding and Copper bowls. There’s even cat-accessed backcountry*, a dedicated Family Zone, and a public freestyle training park, Woodward at Copper.

*NEW FOR 2019/20 - a three person fixed-grip chair, loading at Blackjack and taking skiers and riders up to 12,200 ft at the top of The Taco Chute. This expert high alpine terrain on Tucker Mountain was previously only accessible by hiking and snow-cat tours on weather-permitting weekend days. The new chair will run seven days a week, providing quick repeat access to the incredible 273 acres of steep chutes and gladed trails which make up the in-bounds terrain here.

With a relaxed, family-friendly vibe, the purpose-built resort village has three linked areas - the free shuttle bus takes just five minutes to travel between them. Centre Village is the main focal point for bars and restaurants and, for more restaurants and bars, the small town of Frisco a six-mile shuttle ride away.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

We were lucky with loads of fresh snow, and enjoyed well groomed empty slopes. Not bad for presidents weekend! Food on the mountain and at the village is expensive, not quite as much choice as larger resorts, but all very well run and well maintained. In the process of upgrading restaurants and lifts. This resort is almost as high as Breckenridge, so be prepared to get used to the altitude. Lovely extended village resort, with regular free buses from one area to the next. Also frequent free buses to local town (Frisco), handy for sightseeing (limited) and supermarket - handy for stocking up at a reasonable cost.

Copper Mountain really does live up to its reputation from the info we'd read about it beforehand. The terrain is naturally divided into easy, intermediate and advanced and offers something for everyone. The gentle runs roll down through trees and are enjoyable, rather than boring. There were also lots of ungroomed runs, varying from intermediate to extreme, with a real feeling of skiing off-piste, even though they were recognised runs. And the big bowls with single and double black diamond runs are fantastic. We were there late January/early February and the slopes were almost empty on weekdays. The resort itself has plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars and a friendly atmosphere. You do need a vehicle here, if self catering, as there is nowhere to buy groceries. The nearest town, Frisco, is only 15 minutes drive away, but wouldn't be very practical to shop using the free shuttle bus. We loved it - one of our best ever ski trips (and we've been on lots)! We were lucky to get really good snow conditions, although no fresh powder, and mainly sunny weather, so we had wonderful skiing for 9 days.

This is our second visit to Copper which is a lovely place to stay. A nice compact resort we just wish they had more restaurants to choose from. Nothing is too much trouble for anyone you can just pick up the phone for any help or advice, the transport is all free and an excellent service.

An Unbelievable Year With Ski Safari

23rd May 2019 - Jack Scotford-Smith

My journey with Ski Safari all started with one email, before a job vacancy was even advertised… “ Dear Ski Safari, I love skiing. Please hire me ”. Having worked two seasons in Tignes in the French Alps, I knew that I desperately wanted to work in the ski industry when I returned home. I have...
