What a great deal! You can even bring your mountain bike up the lift with you! This is the place where my kids make there 1st solo decent of the entire mountain at the age of 8! Probably not the smartest Dad decision I have ever made.;)
As it has in the past, Copper Mountain is once again offering free round-trip rides on its American Eagle chairlift, located in Copper’s central village. The free rides started Monday and are scheduled to run until the end of Copper’s summer season near Labor Day.
“We just wanted to let folks know that we understand that times are tight,” said spokesman David Roth. “We wanted to make it easier for people to come and check out copper.”
The nearly 10,000 foot long scenic ride covers a 2,000 foot elevation change and takes riders over much of Copper’s rocky terrain. At the top of the lift, guests can explore some hiking and biking trails and check out the Solitude Barbecue. Visitors to Copper can also enjoy a variety of other paid activities from go-karts and mini-golf to bungee tramps and cycling.
The free chairlift rides are another expansion to Copper’s summer repertoire. The resort just recently opened the Woodward at Copper, an indoor/outdoor ski and snowboard camp. Read more about Woodward at Copper at http://bit.ly/AaAwZ.
Many guests have asked how to get from DIA to Summit Peaks and Riverside Lodges. My suggestions are two: first, rent a car or SUV. Every national rental car company is located right at DIA. The second is use Colorado Mountain Express, and let the pros take you to our door step! Click on or paste this link in your browser and you get a 10% discount with your booking!!

Yes it is true you can travel from the front door of any of our four lodges and FREE shuttle and take a bus ride through out Summit County! That includes door to door service for Copper, Keystone, Breckenridge, and A-Basin resorts. It is so convenient if members of your group want to ski or hike a different mountain than others, no problem take the stage threre. I have heard more than once that the Stage made there Apres ski experience that much better and safer! The stage runs 6AM to 1AM 365 days a year. In the winter you can load your skies or board and in the summer you can load your Bike. One fun thing to do is load your bike and bus it to an up hill destination and then enjoy the ride back to the Lodge. Another is take your bike to one of the summer resort festivals (one every weekend of summer) and ride back after a day of fun and sun! The stage stops at our lodges about every 20 minutes and full schedule can be found at:www.summitstage.com Our tourist tax revenues provides this service so don’t be afraid to get out and hp a ride!
