Colorado, United States

Copper Mountain ski resort is located in Summit County, Colorado.

The ski resort opened in early 70’s and Copper Mountain ski resort hosted the World Cup tour in 1976 with four alpine ski races: slalom and giant slalom for both men and women. The ski area as well as the village have been rebuilt and reinvigorated since then and is among the best and most convenient of the Colorado destination resorts.

The ski area features steep alpine terrain with chutes, cornices and expert-only bowls to delight. Included in your lift ticket is the snowcat skiing on Tucker Mountain which is also good for those seeking a challenge.
