Fodor's Expert Review Copper Mountain Resort
0509 Copper Rd., Copper Mountain, Colorado, 80443, USA
Copper Mountain Resort manages the majority of lodging in the area, ranging from standard hotel rooms to spacious condos and town homes. Lodging comes with use of the beautiful Copper Mountain Spa & Athletic Club. The Center Village is the center of activity, as it's close to most of the shops and restaurants. Unlike Vail with its Tyrolean feel and Breckenridge with its mining-town roots, Copper Mountain Resort was built from scratch, and has a more modern and function-over-form feel, with concrete towers showing just a hint of alpine architecture. The resort manages studios and one- to four-bedroom units, all independently owned, but managed by Copper. East Village is not as centrally located, but provides easier access to the mountain's more challenging terrain.
