"An Excellent Variety of naturally differentiated terrain"

We are delighted to be returning to Copper Mountain for the first time since 2012! If it's been a while since you've been to Copper Mountain you may think like a lot of others that well it as a great place to ski, but not if you're into apr├Ęs and nightlife. Well, things have changed! Read Ski Magazine's 2019 review of Copper Mountain.

The Village at Copper is already bearing fruits of change as a result of a $100 million multi-year transformation, which includes: new venues like Toast & Co and 10 Mile Tavern; revamped retail at Camp Hale, and two new lifts (the resort replaced the American Eagle and American Flyer last season with a six-pack and "chondola," respectively). Copper Mountain has an average snowfall/year of 305" with almost 2,500 of naturally divided skiable terrain serviced by 23 lifts with over 140 trails and 150 runs.
The base at Copper Mountain is at 9,712' with a resort summit elevation of 12,312'.

Don’t know what a “chondola” is – well it’s a hybrid lift combing the elements of a gondola and chairlift. The resort spent an estimated $20M on the lift upgrades.
According to Ski magazine their readers are thrilled with the new lifts!” Theses upgrades increased the capacity by +35%. What a good description of what a “chondola” is read what the Boston Globe said in 2017 about the one built in New England at a cost of $7.2M back in 2008.
