9 Reasons to Visit Copper Mountain, Colorado in the Summer or Fall

Ski mountains are not just for skiing anymore and if you didn’t know that, you haven’t visited one recently. Many mountains have really upped their game to attract families for three seasons, not just one. Copper Mountain in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado is certainly no exception. In August, we were invited to visit and experience everything that Copper Mountain in the summer had to offer. With just two-and-a-half days, we really packed everything in for an activity-filled long weekend of family fun.
From festivals and food, live music and outdoor activities, you will not be bored during a Copper Mountain summer visit!

9 Ways to Enjoy a Copper Mountain Summer (or Fall) Visit
1 – Festivals. When we visited, there was not just one festival going on at Copper Mountain, there were two. There was the 33rd Annual Jazz and Wine Festival taking place in the conference center. This event required a separate ticket and featured headliners like Keiko Matsui over the course of three days. The other was the Colorado Burger Summit, featuring burger options from restaurants around Colorado and live musical performances in Central Village.

This fall brings more events like the Copper Country music festival, WitchCraft, UnderArmour Mountain Running Series, the Wrecktangle Championships, and the Big Island Rail Jam. Almost every weekend in the summer brings something new and fun to Copper Mountain.
2 – Wrecktangle Ninja Obstacle Course. If you have ever watched American Ninja Warrior and thought it looked like fun, a visit to Copper Mountain will let you give a similar obstacle course a try. Brand new this summer, the Wrecktangle at the base of the mountain offers nine different obstacles like cargo nets, balance beams, rope swings, and a ramp wall. It is kick-butt hard, it is hysterical, it is embarrassing, but most of all it is fun!
3 – Scenic chair lifts. Those less adventurous or physically fit can still enjoy the mountain views from the scenic chair lift rides. You can either get off at the top and walk down on the hiking trails (it is about a 1.5 hour walk), bike down, or ride the lift back to the bottom (the views are even prettier on the way down.)

4 – Mountain biking. Mountain biking is one of the most popular summer sports at ski mountains, but keep in mind that this is not for casual bikers. The trails switchback down the mountain and can be steep and narrow, but excellent fun for mountain bikers. While you can use the chairlift to bring your bike to the top and ride down, we also saw a number of riders on fat tire bikes slowly working their way up the mountain.
5 – Lake activities. In Central Village, there is a small manmade lake, which also offers up some fun family activities. There is a short zipline over the lake, bumper boats, and even hydro bikes.

6 – Village activities. You will find plenty of other fun activities in Central Village including a rock climbing wall, go ka...
