    The food is decent on the mountain at Copper, but it can be crowded & overpriced. Check out downtown Frisco (it's only a 10 min drive) -- there are a bunch of great restaurants for half the price! My favorite is Boatyard Pizzeria ($). Also check out the downtown strip in Breckenridge ... the prices here are about the same but it is a really cute town. Try Steak & Ribs ($$) or Rasta Pasta ($)!

    Each night the main lodge had different family activities for the family to participate in. Very family oriented enviornment.

    Dress Code: Very casual. Jeans, sweatpants, t-shirts, even pajamas if you want. Very relaxing

Copper Mountain Transportation

    If you fly in to Denver there is a shuttle that will take you to Copper Mountain for a pretty pricey fee and it takes much longer to get there than a car. So I would say definitely rent a car. If you come in the winter, try to book an early flight so that you can drive up the mountain during the day. If you are not familiar with driving in the snow -- the roads can close at night or be very hard to see in the snow. Start to slow down 10 times further away than normal. Pump your brakes and turn into the skid if you start to slide. Also park in the garage unless you want your rental to be covered in snow by the time you leave haha.

    The drive up is breathtaking!

    If you fly into Denver Airport, you must rent a car to drive to Copper Mountain. The drive is approx. 2 - 2 1/2 hrs. long. But the sceniary is simply beautiful. Mountains all around you. Excellent highways to travel on, but lots of inclines and declines. If you are unfamiliar with icy road conditions, be extra careful with the icy roads.

Copper Mountain Shopping

    There are plenty of shops to buy whatever it is you need at Copper. There is a small convenience store on the mountain. There is a grocery store in Frisco. We found that the Walmart in Frisco had some of the exact same souvenirs that some of the shops at Copper had -- except cheaper of course. I highly recommend driving to downtown Frisco (10 min drive) or downtown Breckenridge (30 min drive) to see all their cute shops.

Copper Mountain What to Pack

  • by donnasch Written Jul 20, 2005

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: When traveling to a climate that is snowy, and you are going to snow ski, bring clothes that you are able to layer. When the sun comes out in the day time, and you are dressed in several layers, you can start to take off layers once you really start sweating while you are skiing.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: If you have asthma, or breathing difficulties, make sure you have supplies that will help in this area if you become short of breath. Copper Mountain is 13,000 feet above sea level, very hard to breath.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Warm boots, skiing gloves that are thermial, snow pants and a snow coat.
