Great unit. Beautiful view from the balcony. Just a few steps to the ski lifts. Heart of Copper Mountain Village.
"Copper Mountain Condo"
Left on 09/01/2015 for a stay in July 2015
We had 2 families stay at this condo at Copper Mountain and it was perfect. We had enough room to have our own privacy. Grandparents, children and grandchildren for a total of 7 people had more fun and the best restaurants in walking distance, horseback riding, ski slopes even in the summer was so much fun for the kids.
We will be back. Loved it.
"2016 USASA National Championships"
Left on 04/15/2016 for a stay in March 2016
We stayed in this unit at a time when 1,500 other competitors fill Copper Center Village. This unit was close enough to all the action and far enough away for some peace and quiet. Loved that I could see most of the half pipe and the boardercross course with binoculars. The unit has everything a family needs for a long stay. Very clean, plenty of storage (although snowboards don't fit in the locker), comfortable beds and furniture. The kitchen has lots of good equipment to do home cooked meals, in particular a good set of knives. One of the nicest places we have stayed at Copper of the past 8 years.
"Minor issues in the Mountains"
Left on 07/30/2015 for a stay in July 2015
Great location in town. Center of everything. On our first night the apartment above us caused water to rain from light fixtures due to a broken dishwasher which caused interruption with repair men visiting at night with a baby sleeping. Would not recommend using dishes either, we found lots of dirty dishes in the cabinets in the unit. The ice machine from the refrigerator seemed broken as well, would not stop making ice and filled to the very top and would also fall on the floor everyone freezer was opened. Pricey for the experience we had.
About Copper Mountain
Copper Mountain, Colorado, is a massive winter ski and snowboard destination, nestled deep in the Rocky Mountains west of Denver. Most people head to Copper Mountain during the snowy winter season, when the lifts are open and the powder is high. The mountain boasts more than 2,400 acres of skiing terrain, with two peaks towering at 12,000 feet. Even expert skiers and snowboarders will find days of entertainment on this amazing mountain.
The Rocky Mountains are one of the most picturesque ranges in the country and Summit County boasts beautiful alpine scenery from every angle. Located in the White River National Forest, Copper Mountain is ringed by pristine pine and spruce forests. Taking advantage of the region's natural beauty, families love to go snowshoeing through the quiet meadows around the mountain, or get together for ice-skating and hot chocolate on West Lake. For an adrenaline rush, there is also a snow tubing course at the base of the mountain. If you are in the mood for some old-fashioned fun, sign up the family for a sleigh ride through the valley.
While Copper Mountain is best known as a winter destination, it is also a great place to take the family in the summer. Golfers can test their irons at the Copper Creek Golf course, the highest altitude green in the United States. For summer weddings, don't overlook Copper Mountain as a destination, where the breathtaking mountain scenery makes a fine backdrop for family photos.
