Copper Mountain ski area, Colorado, Management Description

|| ||Copper Mountain ski area Management Says:|
Thirty-eight years ago a guy named Chuck Lewis looked at an unassuming mountainside with vision and conviction. He took one look at the current site of Copper and told his friends, I donít care how everyone else does it, we're not everyone else, and he meant it. He negotiated a deal to purchase 280 acres at the base and worked with the Forest Service to establish parameters and guidelines for the ski area. Chuck was
both a renegade and a visionary. During the summer of '71, initial construction began on the ski trails. Today, Chuckís dream is alive and well.|
As stated in a 1969 US Forest Service report, if there were a mountain that had
|terrain for skiing it would be Copper Mountain. It is the most nearly perfect ski mountain in the U. S. Over the years, new lifts were added and Copper grew to its current size of 2,465 acres. What was once a sleepy little day ski area is now one of Colorado's premier year-round destination resorts. In 1997, the resort was purchased by Intrawest - a worldwide leader in resort operations and real estate development.|
Now the resort consists of not only
an incredible mountain, but multiple villages, hundreds of buildings and a million other tangible, moving pieces. Copper is, and always has been, bigger than the tangible. Copper is about people. Itís about spirit. Itís about attitude,
passion, heart, guest loyalty and financial strength. Itís about a place that provides a true connection to nature, adventure, the mountain, the community and the mountain lifestyle, void of any pretense. Itís a place, most of all,
intent on allowing guests to push their proverbial Ďplay button. í|
