A Rocky Mountain Playground at Copper Mountain

Long summer days and starry alpine nights will be easy to fill this summer at Copper. An abundance of new options will be available in The Village at Copper to round out the myriad of mountain adventures in the area, creating the perfect mountain playground for visitors of all ages and interests.

West Lake Market comes to life this summer offering guests a host of new activities. Hop on a pedal kayak and explore West Lake by water or stay ashore and hone your fly fishing skills at a Blue River Anglers’ fly casting clinic during one of the three weekly sessions. Other daily lake activities include canoeing, paddle boating, remote control sailboats, free kids’ fishing and more.

For those wanting to stay dry, numerous activities are available throughout the resort. Colorado’s largest free-standing outdoor climbing wall boasts routes modeled after some of the world’s most famous climbs. The wall is open to visitors of all abilities daily for $5 a climb. Copper’s Quad Power Jump provides an adrenaline rush as guests jump and twist on a trampoline while safely harnessed in. The jump is open 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. daily for $7 per jump or three jumps for $18. Another option for the more adventurous, a zipline has been added this season, allowing visitors to sail through the air above the resort. The zipline will be open daily from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. and is $12 a ride. A miniature golf course makes its debut as well this summer, giving visitors the opportunity to putt-putt the day away on Copper’s alpine adventure course. One round of miniature golf is $7. Tickets for all village activities can be purchased at the Adventure Desk inside the Mountain Adventure Center.

Free scenic chair lift rides on the American Eagle lift continue this summer leaving The Village at Copper from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. daily, carrying guests up to 11,000 feet for spectacular views. An outdoor
barbecue on the deck of Solitude Station or a nature hike guided by one of Copper’s Naturalists are options before heading back down. Those looking for a more adventurous trip back to the base can board the lift with their mountain bike and embark on the 1,500 vertical feet that separate them and the village. Bike transport on the lift is $12 for the entire day.

New this season, the Kids Adventure Pass makes it easy for kids to take advantage of all the summer fun at Copper. The Kids Adventure Pass is a punch card that entitles kids 13 years and under who are staying at the resort free access to many of Copper’s great activities including the Quad Power Jump, the zipline, kids pony rides and more.
