Transportation and Directions to Copper Mountain Colorado Ski Resort:

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 ridiculous route, just stay on I70 until you get to the Copper Mountain exit.

  • From Denver:
    • Interstate 70 West
    • Take the exit for Copper Mountain (at Hwy 91)
      (Just west of Silverthorne and Frisco)


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. Note that GPS directions to Copper Mountain will direct you to the "Center Village" where your parking option is limited and expensive. Find the "Alpine" lot and take the shuttle as this is your best option.
