"Ski school proved both fun and instructive. Because we were skiing during the low season, class sizes were small and lift lines nonexistent"
Copper Mountain Resort is located just 75 miles west of Denver and 20 miles east of Vail off Interstate I-70 at exit 195, easily accessible from both the Denver International Airport and Eagle County Airport.
Denver is the closest major airline hub, approximately 1:45 hours away. Flights into the city are numerous. Eagle County Regional Airport (Vail) is another option if you want to avoid flying into big American cities. This is located closer to Copper (55 minutes away), but on the other side of Vail Pass. It is a smaller airport with less frequent flights, and fewer rental car and transport options.
Driving from the airports by rental car is simple via the I70, although drive times are somewhat variable depending on traffic and road conditions. Take the CO-91 SOUTH exit towards Copper Mountain / Leadville, exit #195 and you’re at Copper.
Gray Line provides several daily scheduled transportation services between Denver International Airport (DIA) and Copper Mountain.
