Discover the Copper Mountain Village
This page is the Copper Mountain, Colorado - Mountain Habitat Community Profile. Besides Arapahoe Basin, Copper Mountain is the only other big ski resort that is not operated by Vail Resorts. The independent nature of Copper allows for unique marketing and messaging and describes how the terrain is also world-class and is one of the first resorts to usually open in Colorado. Copper Mountain is located just west from Frisco on I-70. A short drive through stunning Ten Mile Canyon puts drivers and passengers between the Ten Mile and Gore Ranges.
