Welcome to Copper Mountain
Opened in 1972, this picturesque, self-contained resort southwest of Frisco was the last addition to Summit County ski country. Set high on the eastern slope of Vail Pass along the Colorado Trail, it’s surrounded by high, jagged peaks with long runs carved between evergreens and copious powder in the gorgeous back bowls. In summer there’s everything from snowboard camps, hiking and mountain biking to golf, and you can almost always hear that ever-present rush of Copper Creek over the roar of the nearby highway. Almost always.
