I go up to Copper from Denver every weekend in the winter. I've been to almost every ski area in Colorado, and among the ski resorts close to Denver, Copper is the best. It doesn't get terribly crowded, you don't have to park 10 miles away, and it's pretty easy to get to where you want to go on the mountain without spending hours trying to get there. Plus, the ski school is an excellent, efficient operation. My big gripe with Copper is the lodging. We paid quite a bit (even for ski resort standards) for a tiny room with a murphy bed and a sleeper sofa (we stayed at the Tucker Mountain Lodge in the Covered Bridge neighborhood). The mattress on the sleeper sofa was paper thin, and the room was a shoe box. They don't even give you normal toiletries - they give you combined shampoo and conditioner. We only stayed one night, the second night we went to the Devil's Thumb Ranch in Winter Park, which wasn't much more expensive and the experience doesn't even compare. It was like going from a crack house to the Ritz! Copper is a great skiing experience, when I have another weekend in the mountains I will be skiing at Copper and staying elsewhere.
