So you’ve made the decision to gather up the family and take a Colorado ski vacation – now what? Booking the right lodging is crucial to a successful trip. That house, condo or hotel room is going to be your home base; the place you relax after a long day on the slopes. While the options around Summit County may be endless or overwhelming, staying right at Copper Mountain is your best bet for family-friendly ski resort lodging.
What’s more romantic than snuggling up with your hunny under a warm blanket with a hot chocolate (or toddy) to watch the snow fall? There’s something truly magical about the calm silence of snow. Let Copper Mountain do the work and provide you with the ultimate romantic mountain getaway. Between intimate lodging options, delicious dining and plenty of offerings on and off the hill, it will be a getaway you two won’t soon forget.
When it comes to so many activities and so little time, you need the perfect place to stay so you can maximize your exploring. With its close proximity to everything in Summit County and much to do right on site, Copper Mountain is one of the best places to stay in the Colorado mountains. Here are 7 reasons why:
- Copper boasts 2,490 acres of naturally-divided terrain so skiers and snowboarders of all levels can enjoy the mountain at their own pace.
