On July 3, 2015, a Flight for Life helicopter plummeted from the sky outside Frisco, Colorado, violently crashing into a parking lot. Dave Repsher, former Copper employee and Summit County Flight for Life nurse, climbed out of the crashed helicopter engulfed in fuel and flames. This is the story of Dave's incomprehensible journey from rugged mountain hero, to horrific burn victim, to miraculous survivor, to hero once again.
At Copper Mountain, we intend to Play Forever. We believe there is nothing better for the soul than to live a balanced life full of adventure, and we believe those in the future should have the same opportunities we have today. To make this happen, Copper is committed to doing all we can to protect the environment and enable participation in adventure.
Dear Copper Community,
There have already been a few dustings of snow on the peaks at Copper Mountain, which means it won’t be long before we can get back to doing what we love – skiing and riding! Now more than ever, we look forward to reconnecting on the slopes.

Our Summit County community has been hit hard by COVID-19 in the past 6 months. Two-thirds of our mountain community has been financially impacted by the virus. Many residents here depend on the ski industry in order to make a living and with the March shutdown of Colorado ski areas that ended the winter ski season, many in our community were left unable to pay bills and provide basic needs for themselves and their families.
During this stressful time, a weekend getaway might be just what you and your family needs. You’re in luck: Copper has lots going on this summer that will not only provide a good time but keep you safe and healthy. You can see all of our protocols here. Let us take the guesswork out of your planning. Here’s a perfect itinerary!
