Made a trip to copper with some friends. We have never skiied here but were pleasantly surprised.
Everything is pretty organised and you drive into several parking lots, some of which are free. various shuttles ferry people to different areas of the mountain. It is easy to work out which shuttle to be on as sinage is quite good.
We went tubing which was fun. An activity that is a good option for those who cant or dont want to ski. Appeals to lots of age groups and the staff were friendly. There is a magic carpet on the side so you dont have to walk all the way up the hill. Although it isnt as long as other tubing areas (eg whistler is huge) it was still a ton of fun and managed to get over 8 runs in.
The snow was AMAZING and looked like it was frequented by many local experienced skiiers and snowboarders. Apparently it is extremely popular for snowboarding but i saw tripple the amount of skiers when i was there.
It is pretty reasonably priced, including food and drinks compared to other ski areas. Not a huge amount of water fountains which was a bit annoying but apart from that not too bad. The store had lots of options and offered lots of deals also.
There is a bucketload of trails availbable and caters to the novice to the super expert.
Nice to get away from the crowds and ski with locals!
ps if you decide to go tubing, book at least a week in advance. you are able to get a slight discount.
