Copper Mountain is my favorite mountain to ski each winter. I learned to ski as an adult, which is extremely tough, and as of this post I've been skiing only six times but three of them at Copper. Copper is an easy 100-mile drive on Interstate-70 from the Denver Airport or you can shuttle out.


Incredible mountain for beginners! It has a great layout of ski slopes to keep the talented skiers on the other side of the mountain instead of running over beginners like me.


The luxury homes are all located on the "green" or easy, west side of the ski resort. It is very easy to get to a number of "blue" or intermediate slopes and larger lifts that will take expert skiers to the east side of the ski resort for the "black diamond" or murderous slopes.


Murderous to me as an adult beginner! Kuddos to you expert skiers that learned as a short child with a low center of gravity and no fear!


The condos are mostly located in Center Village which offers two main lifts and don't worry beginners, I would never lead you astray. Check out my Beginner's Guide to Copper Mountain article to see how to get from Center Village to all the bunny slopes with ease as well as back to home base.

I have spoiled myself with great ski in, ski out accommodations and now wouldn't have it any other way. All of the homes and condos listed are just a short walk [I mean it, SHORT walk!] to a ski lift. Enjoy this list of best places to stay for your winter ski trip to Copper Mountain, Colorado.


The list starts with luxury home rentals from smallest to largest, then to luxury condo rentals and more affordable condo options at the end.


COPPER MOUNTAIN LUXURY HOME RENTALS

On the north end of Copper Mountain Resort is a luxury home gated-community called Lewis Ranch. The Lewis Ranch neighborhood is on the quiet and secluded west side of the Copper Mountain ski resort. It is heavily forested toward the north, but provides excellent views of the ski slopes to the south. The gated nature of the community provides security and privacy.


The photos shown with each beautiful home cannot possibly due them justice. Visit the rental website for each to see photos of the inside...you won't believe how nice these places are!

The Mill at Lewis Ranch: Award Winning True Ski in-Ski Out Masterpiece

Entire Lewis Ranch Luxury Home| 4 Bedrooms/4 Baths | SLEEPS 16 | CLOSEST TO LUMBERJACK LIFT

Award winning Copper Mountain Luxury Rental

My absolute favorite home (I've stayed with a group of friends twice) is "The Mill" at Lewis Ranch. Within the gates of Lewis Ranch, located at the Lumberjack chair lift is a true and direct ski-in/ski-out treasure called "The Mill." It boasts the closest location to a lift anywhere in Copper, unobstructed panoramic views of the sky chutes, ski area and Vail Valley. Free on call bell service transportation to all Villages and resort areas.


The Mill is located directly on the ski run just steps from the base of the chairlift, there simply is no closer or better location available. The ski-in entry room has dedicated ski, board and boot storage, refreshment bar for hot chocolate, microwave, fridge, washer dryer, and is a great place to ski in for a break or lunch and then hit the slopes again! Simply ski to the door (no hiking, true ski-in/ski-out), unhook and enjoy a steam shower, billiards, movie or star gaze from the deck in the privacy of your own hot tub.


Soft Old World charm, imported tile, reclaimed wood, hand-cut stone, furniture grade trim, abundant quartz and granites, warm timbers and heirloom custom built-ins complement expansive windows that offer breathtaking views in every direction are the details that set The Mill apart from most homes you will find in the area.

Warming Hut Copper Mountain Luxury Rental

The Warming Hut was designed for families and friends to have their best possible gathering. Open concept and multi-floor rooms encourage shared experiences while also allowing for relaxation in front of a cozy fire and two-story mountain views. The recreation room has a wet bar, pool table, PS4, six TVs, and seating for 14. The ski room offers ample room for gear, a fireplace, a TV, and a card table. And don't forget the six person hot tub just steps off the ski room.


We all know that FOOD is near the top of everyone’s what-makes-vacation-special list, and the Warming Hut does not disappoint. Many guests say that the central, gourmet kitchen with commercial grade appliances actually made them want to cook. For those who prefer chef-prepared food, we can help you arrange a professional in-Hut culinary feast (our local cooks/caterers love the kitchen, too). On nights when you want to try a local restaurant, a complimentary shuttle will come to the Warming Hut’s front door during prime ski season dates.
