Located in the western edge of Summit County, Copper Mtn is “The Locals Favorite” for skiing. The natural layout of the ski mountain is what makes Copper Mountain unique. The eastern edge of the resort is steeper than the western edge. Therefore, the the beginners and experts are naturally separated, while the intermediates have plenty of trails to ski in the middle.
Several bowls are accessed from the top of the mountain; Copper Bowl provides wide open skiing, Resolution bowl has bumps and Spaulding bowl is known for its steeps. Copper is also a year round resort with go carts and mountain biking in the summer, together with many music events and bicycle races.
