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.

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.

The snowboarding was amazing. Great links, varied pistes, so much variety and good mountain restaurants. Only criticism would be the village restaurants are quite similar and close early. Not really an apres scene and selection of bars that close late.

The skiing was excellent plenty of powder, awesome. The staff for whatever service you required were helpful and friendly. You can just hop on a bus or visit the leisure centre for free. My only negative comment is that I wish the resort had a few more restaurants to eat out in the evening.

22 September typically marks the last day of summer, but in North America, resorts skipped autumn and went straight to winter, with feet of snow falling right down to base level in some areas. Even more snow fell this week which has us eagerly anticipating those first turns of the season. For some...
