Copper Mountain is a mountain located in Summit County about 75 miles (121 km) west of Denver, Colorado, right on Interstate 70. Its most notable use is as a ski resort, owned and operated by Fortress, although it provides golf and mountain biking activities during the warmer months. It is well-known for its wide variety of naturally separated terrain. The ski area features beginner slopes on the western side of the mountain, intermediate slopes in the center, and expert terrain on the eastern side. Advanced "double black diamond" slopes are located on the two peaks above 12,000 feet (Copper and Union Peaks), including four expert-only bowls--Copper Bowl, Union Bowl, Spaulding Bowl, and Resolution Bowl. Copper Mountain Ski Resort is the largest resort in Summit County when measured by area. Image File history File links Copper_Logo_Large. ...

Villages

The lodging, dining, and entertainment facilities at Copper Mountain are divided into three villages: East Village, The Village at Copper (the main village), and Union Creek (west). In recent years, Intrawest has vastly improved the three villages, constructing dozens of new hotels, condominiums, restaurants, shops, and bars. This followed a similar upgrade of the lift system on the mountain.
