Located 75 miles from Denver in the heart of Summit County, Copper Mountain offers 126 trails spread over it’s mammoth 2,465 skiable acres of steeps, wide open bowls, tree-filled glades and gentle beginner areas. One of the mountain’s newest features is Woodward at Copper, featuring The Barn, a 19,400-square-foot comprehensive ski and snowboard freestyle training facility complete with indoor artificial snow jumps, jib lines, foam pits, skate features and Olympic fly-bed trampolines. Indoor and outdoor training programs allow riders to learn tricks in a controlled environment before taking them out onto the snow. Copper Mountain also boasts a long list of kudos for its on-snow features.
