Copper Mountain Activities
The Tubing Hill
: All tubing hills are not made equal. You could go the classic straight lane route, or you can up your game with Copper. After a day on the slopes, kick off those ski boots and gather your entourage (AKA your family) and head to the hill. Sign your waiver and test out your hand picked tube on Copper’s banked curves. Laugh your pants off with Copper Tubing Hill.
Alpine Rush Zip Line
: No longer just a summer activity, you can get your "zip" on all year round. Soar over West Lake on Copper's very own Alpine Rush Zip Line. Watch the ice skaters below, take in the view and don't forget to smile!
West Lake Ice Skating
: Enjoy some time on the ice by grabbing some skates and stopping by West Lake! Make use of the broomball and curling equipment or hockey nets, all of which are available for free. Don't have skates? Stop by the Woodward Cage and rent some for the day! Hours are from 10am - 9pm daily.
: Woodward Copper is a year round snowboard and ski training facility dedicated to the progression of the sport. Foam pits, jumps, bowls, street skate area and trampolines are just a few things that make up the Woodward Copper Barn. Woodward is the ONLY training facility of its kind in the mountains.
Restaurants & Dining

Located a mere 10-minute drive southwest of Frisco, Copper Mountain is a relatively new resort among Northern Rockies ski destinations. Boasting a ski resort with an award-winning trail system
, Copper Mountain also features a pedestrian village that is filled with eclectic shops, trendy restaurants and charming lodging options. This resort offers much more than skiing, however; it also serves as a scenic summer destination
renowned for its golfing, hiking and biking opportunities. The mountain's American Eagle Chair Lift offers a birds-eye view of the surrounding peaks, as it takes passengers to a height of more than 11,000 ft (3,300 m) every weekend from May through September. Colorado's largest outdoor climbing wall
, which stands 35 ft (10.7 m) tall, is also found on the mountain and offers climbing adventure during summer months. Every Labor Day weekend in September, Copper Mountain is abuzz during the Copper Country Music Fest, which features performances by some of country music's biggest stars.

Copper Mountain is within shuttle range
of Denver International Airport (75 miles) and a lot of skiers/riders like to fly in early so they can get on the slopes by noon. There are 22 lifts serving 2,433 acres of playland, with 125 trails slightly weighted to more advanced skiers. The trail systems are separated by ability levels so beginners don't cross in front of experts. Copper's re-developed village is now among the best and most convenient of the Colorado destination resorts, with plenty to keep you occupied off-slope.
