Copper Mountain, Colorado

Copper gets just about everything right for families, from on-mountain day care to their Critterland snow-covered playground to a variety of non-ski activities like ice skating and snow tubing. It’s easy to bed down away from the party-like atmosphere of the central village, and just as easy to get around the resort thanks to free shuttles. Beginners also benefit, thanks to a variety of small-group intro classes and a decent number of green runs blissfully isolated from the rest of the mountain’s more extreme runs.
