Best things to do in Copper Mountain

One of the numerous places you can visit in Colorado is Copper Mountain. You won’t run out of activities to do in this lovely and majestic place. We’ve saved the best ones for you.


Recognized as having the most organized skier layout of any ski resort by National Forest Service. Beginners can start at the West Village (formerly Union Creek) and from there eastward the course will gradually increase in difficulty towards East Village (Center Village). Advanced ones are to the far east with the most difficult on the backside. Transitions between the courses are isolated in natural fashion.


Just like skiing, snowboarding is also recommended as the terrain has a natural separation or transition by difficulty across the 3 base areas. This gives snowboarders a section based on their ability.

Snow Tubing

If the above is not your thing, you can try this. Sessions usually last an hour and it’s also good for the kids. Be sure to gear up with warm clothes.

Dine Out

The villages at Copper Mountain offer a range of restaurants you and your family will enjoy. From Mexican cuisine at Mahi’s Street Tacos to the classic American dishes at Ten Mile Tavern to a quick fix of Italian at Mamma’s Italiano to chilling time at On The Rockies Whiskey And Wine Bar.
