Copper Creek Golf Course

Copper Creek Golf Club is a place where golf and tradition blend with the Copper lifestyle. A mix of links and mountain style holes designed by the venerable Pete and Perry Dye, at 9700 feet Copper Creek is the highest championship golf course in North America. Copper Creek accommodates the novice golfer from the forward tees while still providing a great test for the accomplished golfer. Spectacular views of the Tenmile Range provide the perfect backdrop for any golf outing and Copper Creek's outstanding service is sure to impress.  Group rates, lessons, rentals and tournaments available.

Alpine Rush Zip Line

First launched in the summer of 2012, Copper's newest attraction—the Alpine Rush Zip Line—will continue to operate throughout the 2012/13 winter ski season. This family-friendly ride features a unique dueling-design which allows two guests to fly side-by-side as they soar 30 feet above Copper's bustling West Lake ice skating rink. The flight travels 300 feet across the lake, reaching speeds of up to 30mph. Alpine Rush makes the perfect addition to Copper's intimate, pedestrian Village, which features restaurants, shopping and comfortable lodging, all within walking distance to the lifts.

Mountain Biking/Cycling

Copper offers something for everyone… from the moderate Shrine Pass with its spectacular views to getting a ride up the American Eagle lift and riding down the mountain road.

Hundreds of miles of road biking terrain—much of it on the state's most scenic mountain by-ways and paved bike paths—are accessible from the resort. From a spin around Lake Dillon on the bike path to the local's favorite “Copper Triangle” ride, the riding and scenery can't be beat.

Hiking and Trail Running

Discover Copper Mountain on a beautiful nature hike! Hike or take a scenic chairlift ride to the peak of Copper Mountain, stroll along the Colorado Trail or observe the plants and animals in the forest at the top of the American Eagle lift. Complimentary hiking poles, strollers and child-carrying back-packs are available for complimentary use at Guest Services. Information about self guided hikes is also available at Guest Services in the Mountain Adventure Center in the Village at Copper.

Fly Fishing

Some of the best fly fishing in the state of Colorado is right in our backyard. Spend the afternoon catching a Colorado Cutthroat Trout. Alternatively, take a guided fishing trip to make the most out of your limited fishing time.
