Copper is one of six Summit County Colorado ski resorts (Arapahoe, Breckenridge, Copper, Ski Cooper, Keystone, Lovaland) just off of highway 70 about 110 miles from the Denver International Airport. Copper Mountain is acessible by shuttle bus or by rental car.
One must first get to Denver Colorado which is easily accessed by air.
Note that some mapping systems and GPS's will route you off of I70 and onto highway 6 and back onto highway I70. That is a rediculus route, just stay on I70 untill you get to the Copper Mountain exit.
Copper Mountain provides limited and expensive (on high traffic days) parking at the center and East village of the mountain. There are multiple shuttle served large secondary lots.
