YES, you can now reserve any* accommodation at one of the best resorts in the whole of North America, that's in all of USA & Canada, COPPER MOUNTAIN COLORADO, voted 2021s best value resort & best family resort.
So you can book any hotel room, studio, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 bedroom apartment, for any length of time, in any location in Coppers 3 villages.
After locking in some accommodation, so no one else can book it, you can, at any stage, before the balance is due, decrease the number of nights, increase the number of nights (subject to availability) change accommodation completely, whatever, with no amendment fee, up until the balance is due 35 days, before arrival at the resort, unless the booking includes any night in period 17 December 2021 to 3 January 2022, when, in this case, the balance is due in full on booking.
(* any accommodation in the huge rental pool managed by Copper Mt lift co)
Prices start from only USD$172/night including all taxes, midweek in January 2022, that's around AUD$230 or less than AUD$39 (if 6 sharing) for a 3 star apartment only 200m flat walk to 6 & 8 person ski lifts, that sleeps up to 6 in 4 beds in 2 separate areas & a full kitchen. It this luxury ? No, but we have hundreds more to choose from, many 4 or 5 star, all within 200m walk of the lifts.
For the latest on these flights go to our separate site
(we do have many non-skiers who book our flights to USA & use them as a very low cost way, to get to anywhere in USA, Canada or Mexico)
To check out Copper, go to

& then under it
LODGING & ACCOMMODATIONS
lodging overview, which will show you any accommodation, for the dates you requested, anywhere in Copper, or pick one of the 3 villages & you can even choose a certain apartment building.
then enter in & out dates, number of adults & kids & hit
Our prices for accommodation including taxes, will be similar to the online prices without 12% taxes, which aren't added online, until the end, on the Copper website.
PLUS, we can give you instant confirmation.
DON'T BOOK ONLINE, OR YOU MAY PAY UP TO 20% MORE & THEN NOT GET OUR LIFT TICKET DEALS.
At this point, email us what you require accommodation wise with dates(a screen shot is fine). Lift ticket s can be reserved later, but can increase in price at any time, so best to request lift tickets you want now. This can be changed later, if required.
Center village, is where most of the action takes place. It's where most of the restaurants & bars are located, along with the liquor store, small supermarket & the American Eagle 6 & 8 person chair/gondola is as well as the longest 6 person chair with a hood in North America, the American Flyer. Just above the base of American Flyer lift is the new Rocky Mt Coaster. Great for all ages, not just kids - see if you can go down without braking !!!
West Village is right beside center village, it's just separated by the creek, which has many bridges & is where the ski school is located.
East Village has plenty of accommodation, is separated from center village by a golf course. It has a few restaurants, the very large Copper Station food hall & is the base of the Superbee 6 person chairlift, which gives you easy access to the whole mountain & the Tubing Hill which is not just for kids, has 4 lanes & it's own lift
The accommodation prices online are just a guide. We get better rates than online, simply because we stay longer than Americans. We also get lift ticket rates, you won't find online, from only USD$74/adult/day including 1 free child/paying adult, if prepaid with the accommodation. That's approximately AUD$49/person/day.
So don't book online, just look online. Availability is live & not always 100% accurate.
Want more bars, restaurants, shops, giant supermarkets, Walmart(to gt another suitcase, to carry home all of the Ralph Lauren warehouse clothes you buy?)
Check out www.OutletsAtSilverthorne.com so big it straddles the interstate highway.
There's a free country bus service that goes roughly every hour from early am to late pm, from various stops in Copper to nearby Frisco & beyond.
Alternatively, Frisco is a ~$20 Uber fare away.
Don't ever buy a day ticket at the resort. Coppers day tickets are a similar price to nearby Breckenridge, which is only 2 miles away, as the crow flies & Vail, 20 mins drive west.
There are also 3 ages for kids, under 13, under 16 & under 18 with different lift ticket pricing, just to confuse us all.
Why don't Copper put all prices online ? Different prices for different markets. Locals simply pay more.
for a Copper map go to
which you can enlarge
but also go to google maps, which has a scale in bottom right hand corner.
zoom in, zoom out & see how close Breckenridge & towns of Frisco & Silverthorne are & see how extensive is the lift system is at Copper compared to Breckenridge.
Google maps are orientated 180 degrees from the Copper map(upside down)
For the trail map go to
or go to 3D map
Lastly, it's very easy to get from California to Colorado. Many of you have some Qantas, Virgin or other frequent flyer points or miles.
If you have a night on the west coast of USA, there are 10 major airports & some smaller ones, from where you can use frequent flyer points to get to one of many Colorado airports.
From 12,000 Qantas points plus ~$5, you can get from California to Colorado. Don't have enough points, get a credit card that gives bonus points upfront or borrow some points. With all our allocated fares to USA on the value fares page above, you can earn Qantas points, once a member of their program, which is free to join.
Similar flights are now available using Virgin points.
Can't get any frequent flyer points, then look at www.Southwest.com, the largest domestic U.S. airline, who have something like 700 or 800 Boeing 737s, who make Qantas look like a tiny regional airline. For most dates in January you can fly nonstop up to 8 times a day & more one stops, from LAX to Denver & back from only USD$57 (around AUD$78) which includes 2 checked bags. (we cannot hold these flights, but Southwest do have constant sales for flights in quiet January). Many other airlines fly from 5 major LA airports & 3 major San Fran airports to many Colorado airports. Just beware that most airlines paid fares, don't include any checked bags & most charge USD$30 for the 1st (not Southwest)
You can call us on (07) 3501 4050, but you'll get a much faster response emailing us at
with all your phone numbers, best time to call, number of adults/kids (& ages), preferred dates i & out of Australia & from which city, number of days skiing & when & any other travel in USA or Canada you might be considering. It's very easy & cheap to use frequent flyer points to fly around USA or USA to Canada in January, as long as you are a little bit flexible. With Qantas points, you can use points on 3 large airlines.
Our web pages, might not be pretty or high tech, but what do you want ? Pretty websites or the best deals ? We have BY FAR, the best deals & knowledge, skiing since 1965, boarding since 1988, organising groups of up to 300 people at at time since early 1980s & owning ski shops from 1989 to 2011.
There are many ways. Eg. the cheapest from massive Denver airport for is to get the train, to downtown Denver(every 15 mins) USD$10.50/adult (less for kids) & then get the Greyhound or govt Bustang coach to Frisco (3 times a day) from USD$12/adult & then get free county bus to Copper, every 30 mins.
There are also many shuttle companies who will take you direct & we are trying to sort out one way car rental right now.
The drive from Denver to Copper is 4 to 8 lanes the whole way, on a very good interstate highway. Watch this video ...
