When thinking about Copper’s Moonlight Dine and Ski, I’d envisioned something along the lines of The Night Before Christmas. You know, “the moon on the breast of the new fallen snow gave the luster of midday to objects below?”
I couldn’t have been farther off base, I realized, as I prepared to follow a guy in a blinking vest down a pitch-black run.

Copper is special to me because most of my progression doesn’t just lie in my abilities as a snowboarder but also the way I shape my outlook on life. Whether it’s getting fresh powder turns in the middle of winter to those beautiful sunny days dialing tricks in the park, I just can’t walk away without a smile on my face.

West Village opened this season with a welcome addition: the new Kokomo Express chairlift. Koko’s Hut, located at the top of the new lift, is scheduled to open by March.
“It’s a beginner’s paradise,” says Stephanie Sweeney, Copper Mountain Marketing Manager.
It really is.

Copper Mountain’s brand new breakfast eatery, Toast & Co., (located in Center Village across from Copper’s iconic Fire Ball) will warm your chilly morning and satisfy your cravings for all things savory, sweet, and even boozy.
This inviting and cozy enclave, appointed with comfy couches and chairs (plus table and bar seating) exudes an understated hip, vintage flair. Strains of bluegrass and coffee house tunes float through the air mingling with the titillating scent of a hearty breakfast cooking on the griddle and stove.
So you’ve made the decision to gather up the family and take a Colorado ski vacation – now what? Booking the right lodging is crucial to a successful trip. That house, condo or hotel room is going to be your home base; the place you relax after a long day on the slopes. While the options around Summit County may be endless or overwhelming, staying right at Copper Mountain is your best bet for family-friendly ski resort lodging.
What’s more romantic than snuggling up with your hunny under a warm blanket with a hot chocolate (or toddy) to watch the snow fall? There’s something truly magical about the calm silence of snow. Let Copper Mountain do the work and provide you with the ultimate romantic mountain getaway. Between intimate lodging options, delicious dining and plenty of offerings on and off the hill, it will be a getaway you two won’t soon forget.
