One of the best advantages of living in a city like Denver is the fact that a breezy drive to Copper Mountain is less than two hours each way! If I’ve had a long week, sometimes I treat myself to a Friday visit to the mountain, which is especially beneficial in avoiding weekend crowds.

Toast & Co. is one of those warm-you-from-the-inside mountain spots you want to keep all to yourself and, at the same time, share with everyone you encounter. Copper Mountain’s attractive Center Village brunch nook has the deliciously sophisticated buzzing breakfast ambiance Summit County has been craving.

Last time I skied at Copper I unzipped my ski bag in Alpine lot and realized I hadn’t packed my gloves. After a quick flash of panic, I collected myself and realized I could easily find a pair at Camp Hale Outfitters in Center Village at the base of American Eagle chairlift. (Did I mention that the gloves I bought are now my favorite gloves I’ve ever owned?)

by Lu Snyder
If you’ve already been on the slopes this year, you may have noticed Copper replaced its American Eagle lift. The replacement is more than a routine equipment update – it offers the resort a chance to better serve guests like you, whether or not you ski or ride.

It’s 4:23 am: I meet ski patroller Kylie Petras in the Lower Patrol Room (LPR). We walk out to the snowmobile (or as patrollers call it, the doo) and ride it up to the weather station at mid-mountain. Kylie looks at the stakes, and check the snowfall accumulation in the past 12 hours, 24 hours, 7 days, 30 days, and the season total. We also look at a gauge that tells the Snow Water Equivalent (SWE), or the wetness/density of the snow. Kylie has a little notebook in the pocket of her ski pants where she’ll write it all down. We ride the doo back down.
