Copper Mountain, CO

Lodging in Copper Mountain

Copper Mountain has been a favorite destination for Summit County travelers for forty years.  Staying at Copper is a great experience, with three different base areas available for lodging.  The Center Village is perfect for families looking for activities.  Center Village offers mini golf, a bungee trampoline, go karts, and scenic chairlift rides, making it easy to keep both kids and adults entertained.  East Village is home to Copper’s golf course, Copper Creek, making it the perfect place for golfers to stay.  West Village offers a bit more solitude; it’s close to the mountain but avoids the hustle and bustle  the other two villages can draw.  All three villages are close enough to walk from one to the other, but there’s also a free local shuttle service that offers transportation between the villages.  Whether you are looking for a studio ski-in/ski-out condo or trying to stay in an executive home, Copper has it all.  There are many agencies that can provide lodging for a variety of price ranges.

  • Wheeler Lakes

Hiking to the Wheeler lakes is great during the early summer and into early fall.

    This short and easy 2 mile hike is located about 5 miles south of Copper mountain.  It leads you to the site of the Old Boston Mine and some of the most marvelous scenery within the Tenmile range.  Take the road to the right of Mayflower Creek which will bring you past occasional mining ruins.  Take the fork to the left, and you will come upon more ruins to explore and a breathtaking view of the mountains.  This is a popular trail for cross country skiers in the winter but during summer is a great short and scenic hike appropriate for the whole family.

  • Uneva Pass Trail

    9 miles/ vertical 2200 ft.

    The Gore Range is named after the Irish baronet Sir St. George Gore, who hunted in the Rockies between 1854 and 1857 and explored the range of mountains that today bears his name. Gore Range is famous for its sharp ridges and the solitude its rugged terrain offers. From Copper, you can follow the Gore Range Trail, which leads north into the wilderness. The terrain varies greatly, ranging from easy to difficult, and you can choose to hike for as little or as much as fits your ability level. While many hikers make the Wheeler Lakes their destination, you can continue a few miles more to the top of Uneva Peak for incredible views of the surrounding peaks and remote back bowls.
