Hey guys. Today I will be trying to give you an idea on the… Best Skiing in Summit
For me this is an easy pick. Most of you would picture the iconic Breckenridge Resort as one of the best but these days the fact that most people would guess that is the exact reason why it’s not #1. The best skiing is Copper Mountain. The in bounds terrain is unbeatable at around 2,456 sq foot, which offers long groomers, endless tree runs, and one of the best parks in the country.
Pro tip: Copper is usually WAY less crowded then the popular resorts offered on Vail’s Epic Passes.
This year they also introduce two new lifts, one using the bubble chairs (allowing you to stay even warmer) and the other lift featuring both gondolas and open chairs. One of the best parts of copper is the ease of access throughout the whole mountain. The other stand out for me is the simple fact that you can tell the employees like working there. It really creates a great atmosphere.
Great night life for anyone who is staying within the resort… no driving needed either!
The town at the bottom is also perfectly placed for all your drink and food needs 🙂
Copper was also just added to the new Ikon Pass, offering a huge selection of mountains. If you like to travel this pass is just the pass for you!
Copper is also home to Woodward. After a day on the slopes hit the Woodward barn for some indoor skateboarding or try out some new tricks in the foam pit!
They are a partner with Summit Express so save some money getting to and from the mountain. Give us (970-668-6000) or Copper a call. Either can help you arrange your transportation.
Copper also offers outdoor snowboarding through the summer. Whether it’s through the camp sessions or through the public park you can always get your snow fix at Copper.
Plenty of rentals for all abilities!
Locals Tip: Mario’s World. . .you won’t find it on your trail map but ask a local and try and ride this section of the mountain off the American Flyer lift. Oh and check out Eagle BBQ too. . .very cool up and coming restaurant at the bottom of the mountain.
