Copper Mountain—a year-round outdoor playground

From cozy chalets built for 2 to spacious family-size lodges, Copper Mountain vacation rentals make the perfect base for enjoying this beautiful corner of Colorado to the full. Although it’s known primarily as a winter-sports resort, its natural beauty provides a spectacular backdrop to an action-packed vacation at any time of year. In spring the hiking trails are ablaze with wildflowers, while in summer the cool mountain air creates a refreshing environment for golfing and rock climbing. Outside of the ski season, it’s possible to pick up great last-minute bargains on Copper Mountain vacation rentals—an extra incentive to visit.

Things to do

Copper Mountain’s friendly neighbor

If you can leave the comfort of Copper Mountain vacation rentals’ cozy log fires, a trip to Frisco makes a pleasant break from the piste. Shuttle buses run from the resort to this friendly town around 8 miles northeast. Founded during the gold rush, Frisco dubs itself “Main Street of the Rockies” for its colorful stores and lively restaurants, and visitors can discover its fascinating heritage on a self-guided tour of the Frisco Historic Park and Museum. This family-friendly facility chronicles 2 centuries of Mountain West culture and includes a schoolhouse listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Activities

World-class winters in Copper Mountain

The first ski runs opened on Copper Mountain in 1972, and just 4 years later the resort hosted its first FIS Alpine Ski World Cup events, with the sport’s elite testing their skills on the demanding slalom courses. Along with world-class skiing, today’s visitors can enjoy tubing, snowboarding, and ice-skating, along with state-of-the-art indoor training facilities. Little ones can burn off surplus energy in Critterland, where supervised play activities are provided, while adults can let their hair down in a local bar, with craft beers and live music on hand to bring a day on the slopes to a sociable conclusion.

Weather

Changing seasons on Copper Mountain

With a change in elevation of over 2,600 feet from base to summit, weather patterns on Copper Mountain frequently vary between the villages and the slopes. Expert forecasts from the resort help winter-sports enthusiasts to plan their day. The ski season typically lasts from December through March or April, when the freezing conditions place Copper Mountain vacation rentals with a hot tub in high demand. This little luxury is also a bonus during the cool, occasionally wet summer evenings that are characteristic of the region’s alpine climate.

Natural features

The wild side of Copper Mountain

The White River National Forest that extends west of Copper Mountain provides a protected natural habitat for wildlife. Lynx, moose, and mountain lions are among the indigenous mammals that thrive in this wilderness, while trout breed freely in its lakes and waterfowl overwinter in its pristine wetlands. One of the most spectacular freshwater habitats is the nearby Dillon Reservoir—a vacation destination in its own right. The upper portion of the reservoir is preserved as a wildlife area, supporting healthy populations of cottontail rabbits, squirrels, beavers, and woodchucks.
