Ski Lifts in Copper Mountain

Copper Mountain Lift System

Copper’s lift system moves skiers in a very efficient manner. The naturally divided terrain and the general layout of the mountain create a perfect situation to move about the ski trails.

Families can actually take the same lift in the middle of the mountain, choose from greens, blues, or blacks, and meet at the bottom of the same lift to take it up once again.  Experts can escape to the east side of the mountain and ski the lifts with experts, while beginners can start on the west side of the mountain and ride the extensive system to entirely beginner terrain.

All in all you’ll find seven surface lifts, 15 chairlifts, and Colorado’s first high-speed six-passenger chairlift, the Super Bee, carrying 32,324 people per hour. The Super Bee reduced a 22-minute, two-lift ride from bottom to top to the current eight minutes. The first lift opens at 8:30 am on weekends and 9:00 am on weekdays. However, if lift tickets are booked in conjunction with lodgings, prior to arrival, the BeeLine Advantage Lift Ticket will allow skiers access to the mountain 15 minutes before the general public. Lifts shut at 3:30 pm on the upper slopes and 4:00 pm on the lower. Lift lines are not a problem during the week; on the weekends during high season, waiting time can be up to 12 minutes.
