An easily navigable mountain village lies in the heart of Copper Mountain Resort. Located just 75 miles west of Denver off Interstate 70, Copper Mountain is a year-round mountain getaway offering a low-key, genuine feeling that is inclusive and comfortable for all. Copper Mountain is a true year-round destination with a full line-up of events and activities during the summer and unforgettable skiing and riding during the winter.
Copper Mountain offers easy access to a wide variety of trails ranging from challenging mountain passes such as Vail Pass and Fremont Pass to an easy, downhill ride on the Ten Mile Creek path into the Town of Frisco and beyond. Also, Copper Mountain holds a long standing tradition of hosting several cycling events each year so Copper is natural fit as a host for the USA Pro Challenge.
"If there were a mountain that had terrain created for skiing, it would be Copper Mountain." Copper Mountain’s founder Chuck Lewis capitalized on this U.S. Forest Service evaluation report in 1970 and began building what Copper is today. Copper opened for its first winter season in 1972 and over the last 42 years, Copper Mountain has become a premier year-round destination.
