In 1971, Chuck Lewis, Copper’s founding father, took one look at the current site of Copper and told his friends, “I’m gonna build me a killer ski resort.” He negotiated a deal to purchase 280 acres at the base. Chuck was both a renegade and a visionary. During the summer of ’71, initial construction began on the ski trails. Over the years, new lifts were added and Copper grew to its current size of 2450 acres, enjoying the status of Summit County’s largest ski area. What was once a sleepy little day ski area is now one of Colorado’s premier year-round destination resorts.
If there were a mountain that was designed for for skiing and snowboarding it would be Copper Mountain. It is one of the most diverse ski areas in the Arapahoe National Forest, and possibly Colorado. Only 2 hour driving away from Denver (75 miles), the north facing peak of Copper Mountain offer an excellent variety of terrain for expert, intermediate and beginners. A neighborhood style on-mountain village offers shopping, dining and other activities.
