Copper Mountain

Copper Mountain has something for everyone at every moment, including an awesome tubing park that is open after the slopes close, the barn at Woodward Copper where you can develop your freestyle ski and riding skills plus the brand new Rocky Mountain Coaster, an alpine coaster that whisks you down the mountain all winter long. Copper comes complete with a lively après ski experience.


At Copper Mountain enjoy 360-degree views of the Rockies and explore challenging bowls, fast groomers, terrain parks and tree skiing.

Build your snow technique with a lesson at the Copper Ski & Ride School or develop your freestyle ski and riding skills with lessons at Woodward Copper’s terrain parks. The Barn at Woodward Copper is an indoor action sports facility with specialty jumps, foam pits, trampolines where you can challenge yourself and prepare for the slopes in a laid-back, progressive environment.
