DOWNHILL SKIING AND RIDING AT COPPER With 2,450 lift-services acres of naturally separated terrain and great villages, it's easy to see why Copper is a favorite among skiers and riders. Copper provides first rate skiing and riding at one of Summit County's largest ski and snowboard resorts during the winter months. Naturally divided for all abilities, the mountain offers steep terrain to the east, gentle slopes to the west, intermediate terrain through the middle and some of the best bowl skiing in the state.

Three distinct base villages now define the Copper experience. On the Western side of the resort, Union Creek base area and The Schoolhouse, a kids-only base lodge, provides the perfect environment for beginners and families. Located in The East Village are Copper Station and the Super Bee - Copper's high-speed, six-person lift with access to the world-renowned intermediate and advanced trails.

Nordic Ski at Frisco
FRISCO NORDIC CENTER The old mining town of Frisco is nestled between the magnificent Tenmile Range and Continental Divide, and is a perfect place to cross country ski. 32Km of cross country ski trails through spruce forest and open meadows and 16Km of snowshoeing on scenic nature trails. There is a newly expanded cross country skiing trail system on Peak 7 in the White River National Forest.

There is more to do than skiing for an active winter vacation. Other nearby activities include snowmobiling above treeline along the Continental Divide, mushing a Siberian Husky-powered dog sled and scenic hot air balloon rides. There are plenty of trails for snowmobilers and snowshoers in the Copper/Frisco area.

Don't forget shopping at Copper's new Center Village or on Frisco's classic small mountain town Main Street and Summit Boulevard. And if you are a history buff, visit the Frisco Historic Park on Main Street and the historic exhibit at Copper in the Snowbridge Square Mall.
