Copper Mountain is naturally separated by terraine into beginner, intermediate, and advanced areas. This means you ususally don't have hot doggers on green runs, nor will you find yourself dodging inept skiers on more advanced runs.I'm a green-blue skier, and found most of the runs to be wide, sunny, and well groomed. Staff is universally friendly and helpful- an employee in the rental area was able to help out a guest having problems with their locker, another ran a grooming report for us, and a third keyed us to a better way to store our shoes for the day. The busses to the parking area run every 2-3 minutes or so, so it's a breeze to get from parking to the ski area. My only complaint this time at Copper is that there has been very little snow this year, many runs have obstacles or grassy spots, yet I never saw a snow machine in operation, and it was definatley cold enough to run them.. We bought the 4 pack, which is one of the best deals in Colorado for skiers like me who only ski 3-5 days a year.
We stayed in Dillon and it was about a 10 minute drive to Copper- not much further than Keystone and maybe closer than Breckenridge.. Copper is a 1st class resort with some great ski deals.
