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 a 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.

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.

Great resort 1 3/4hr easy drive from Denver. This resort has everything to suit absolute beginners to mogul and bowl junkies

28/02/2008 John Hickford , Guisborough

We stayed here for 12 nights in Feb 2008 & had a fantastic time. Accommodation - A studio in Tucker Mountain Lodge. This studio was spacious & well equipped. You had ski lockers on the ground floor & it was a short walk on a snow free/ heated pavement to Copper 1 building in which you went up an escalator to go outside to the lifts. Minimum of walking. For those with tired legs after a days skiing you could flag down a free electric car to drop you off at your accommodation. Athletic Club- worth a visit, nice pool, saunas, steam rooms, hot tubs The Skiing - Conditions were excellent & even on snowy days you never had a white out due to skiing on pistes enclosed by trees. The pistes were never crowded even on Presidents Day Long Weekend. During the week you were often skiing down a piste by yourself. At weekends there were lift queues but as you had the beeline advantage upgrade on your lift pass you bypassed all the queues. Some of favourite runs Greens - Coppertone, Soliloquy, Scooter Blues Jacque's Pique, Copperfields, Bouncer, Andy's Encore. The pistes were generally wide. If you want to play in powder snow away from the crowds go up yhe Rendezvous Lift as this area was often deserted. Restaurants - Imperial Palace - very tasty Chinese food that contained lots of vegetables a lovely change from salads in most other American restaurants. Endo's Wide selection of reasonably priced food. Huge portions Alpinista Bistro - nice food but expensive for what you got. Jack's slopeside bar - nice bowls of Chilli & soup at lunchtime. Double Diamond Restaurant - delicious ribs Pizza Carlo - Great Pizzas & salads Ski Safari - well organised holiday & great service. Would definitely use them again.

An excellent all-round resort, has a little of everything to suit everyone. I recommend at least one breakfast in the nearby town of Frisco, you won't be disappointed. Also go snow-mobiling if you have the chance. The resort itself is a little commercialised, but that's what you get in the US. The lifts are a bit slow, but rewarding when you get to the top!

The Countdown Begins

21st October 2016 - Craig Charley

The ski season is now just weeks away! While a handful of resorts are already offering limited glacier skiing, most will be fully open by the end of November. Two weeks ago we took a look at the first snowfall photos across the USA, now the rest of the world is catching up. Most notably, Whistler...

Winter is Here - America's First Snowfall in Photos

7th October 2016 - Craig Charley

Is early October too soon to get excited about the approaching season? Possibly, but resorts across the USA had their first significant snowfall this week. So much snow that they're already skiing! From light dustings to genuine powder, here are our favourite photos from the first week of winter...
