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.

The Mill at Lewis Ranch - Closest House to a Lift in Copper!

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!

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.

Copper One Lodge Condo: Best location in Center Village

Entire Condo Rental| 1 Bedrooms + Den/2 Baths | SLEEPS 4-6 | Ski In-Ski Out

Copper One Lodge Condo Rental

I've personally stayed at this condo and I would suggest 4 adults max unless you are good with feeling cramped. Would be great for family with kids.

Copper One Lodge Condo Vacation Rental

Copper One Lodge is the best location at Copper Mountain Resort. Closest to the lifts and in the Center of the Center Village. Aptly named Copper One Lodge. This is where the lift ticket window and equipment rental shop is located in Copper Mountain. Other owners say they have a "prime" location, but it's a 5 minute walk in your ski boots to the lifts. Step out the front door and you're in the 'Burning Stones' plaza, the focal point of this European-designed pedestrian village complete with great restaurants, chill bars, retail shops, coffee shops, grocery store and an amazing crepe shop just outside the front door.

We have a full kitchen, gas log fireplace, cable TV and an outdoor patio.


Store your boards in the ski locker located inside the front door of the condo with the closest residence entrance to the ski lifts in the Center Village at Copper.

You can arrive in a blizzard and park your car in the heated underground parking garage near the elevator that takes you to your personal retreat, without stepping in snow, when you choose this condo.


Copper One Lodge has an outdoor hot tub, steam room, fitness area, heated underground parking, ice machine and laundry facilities just down the hall.


Stroll the quaint pedestrian village without having to worry about traffic. The streets are heated so there's no ice to slip on. If you want to slip around on the ice, you can rents ice skates at the shop on the lake when it's frozen.

 

AFFORDABLE COPPER MOUNTAIN CONDO RENTALS


When I say affordable, I am looking at the cost per night and the number of people that can comfortably sleep. These are still in great locations and proximity to chair lifts in Center Village.
