Just 5 miles west of Frisco, Copper Mountain offers fantastic terrain for skiers and riders ranging from beginner to expert. Copper tends to have smaller crowds than most of the other local resorts, and its naturally divided terrain keeps beginner skiers safely in the beginner areas while expert skiers can explore the steeper trails and back bowls. Of course, snow tubing, ice skating, an indoor terrain park training facility, sleigh rides, snowshoe tours, and more mean a day at Copper can be spent doing so much more than skiing.
