I grew up skiing Copper Mountain.
Back then, the days looked a little bit different. I’d awkwardly stumble through the parking lot, carrying the whole family’s poles as my mom kept my sister upright and my dad precariously balanced four pairs of skis in his arms.

My family and I recently skied a new mountain. Though we studied the trail map intently, we still had many questions remaining as we tried to determine where to go first, what trails to hit, where to find the best views. “Wouldn’t it be great if we knew a local?” we wished aloud.
At Copper, you can – and it doesn’t cost a penny.

Copper Mountain’s Ski with a Ranger program is worth stopping to smell the pine, spot the fox tracks and earn some chocolate. Here’s what I learned on a recent guided outing.

Let’s be real, it’s 2019. Things are different now. You’re either tapping into Instagram, or you’re missing out.
I could go on and say how the world is wide. I could repeat your parents and say that fresh air is good for you, but no one wants to hear that. You want to hear the truth, don’t you?

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?)

Chocolates, flowers and the usual dinner out are all great ways to celebrate your special someone, but don’t you crave something a little more exciting this year?
