Copper Mountain - Lockers

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

I have a question for anyone who is a regular at Copper Mountain. I have the Epic Local pass but this weekend will be taking my "beginner wife" to Copper (as we get $55 tickets where we work...woohoo!)

 

Since we will be taking the shuttle in...my wife always likes to take tons of stuff with her...so we will be in need of a locker. I am assuming there are lockers at Center Village...are there any in West Village as well? Can you tell me how much an all-day locker rental cost?

 

Thanks!

Troy

There are lockers at west village/union creek on the lower level.  I've never rented one, but I think they go for an (astounding) $8 a day.  A couple of times (when I've had too much kid stuff) I just toss a ratty backpack under a corner table in the cafeteria.  I'm sure that's frowned upon, but I've never had a problem.

Do you or anyone know if these lockers provide full access throughout the day? Not sure if we would  need to get into them multiple times, but I know some lockers you have to pay each time you open/close it.

 

I typically NEVER get a locker...but my wife has MS and gets tired walking in her ski boots...so I am doing everything I can to keep her "fresh" and not tire out too early! Yeah...$8 is robbery...but I may have to do it.

Yes, the lockers at Copper offer full access throughout the day.  Union Creek lockers are accross the hallway from the rental area.

Sounds like you will need more with the wife, but there are free cubbyholes for shoes near the rental shop in West Village.

I have found a good alternative to the lockers (if you have a lot of stuff) is the ski check. It's right outside the lockers across from ski tuning in the center village. (Just walk in the door left of tickiting and make an immediate right). I think it's 10.00 for a BIG plastic bin that you can put anything in for up to 24 hrs and you have access to it any time you want

I am looking to go to the West Village since my wife is a beginner and only skis greens. We will probably be eating lunch there as well....are there any restaurants on that side? We may just pack some food, but I still need a place to sit. 

 

I appreciate all the feedback guys...

Top floor of main Union Creek building is the food court.  Plenty of table space.

I carry a backpack full of ski gear because I hate walking on pavement (icy) with ski boots.  I just throw my backpack just about anywhere.  Take it outside Union Creek up but the lucnh patio and throw it against the wall or carry it around the side of the building and throw it against the wall or pay 8 bucks so no one steals your ratty old shoes.  There's no need to overthink things...I've never been to ski area that doesn't have bags and shoes lying all over the place. 

 

That being said Copper pissed me off when the they put the new fancy talking lockers in Center Village and built the tops so sloped that you couldn't just throw your bag up top.  Now I have secret spot spot that no one else seems to have spotted so no harm, no foul but the concept of trying to force you to use the lockers....:nono:

East Village locker room has plenty of space to store boot bags on the floor.  But, yes, I also remember being ticked off when Center Village went to the sloped tops.

Fancy talking lockers!?!?   And a silly Sherpa app... but no simple terrain status sign to replace the one they took down when they replace Storm King.  Messed up priorities.

Trying to play keep up with the Epic Pass app crapola is no way to go through life.....there is a reason I don't have the Epic Pass and choose Copper instead...

 

Know what your niche is and cater to it...

Um, that must be new this season if it's "any time" access. I got my skis locked in there a couple times last season when they closed earlier than stated. I couldn't get anyone to give them to me, either .. I talked to a manager in the rental shop next door, he was able to unlock the ski check but refused to give me my skis. I can't remember exactly what the problem was, he wasn't "authorized" or something. But I was irritated. I wasn't staying the night, and I wanted my skis!! 

 

So, I do use that ski check, but make sure to ask if the attendant is planning on honoring the stated hours, or maybe leaving your mobile number with them in case they decide to cut out.

Segbrown, ya "anytime" was probably an over-statement, but I do believe someone is there at least an hour before lifts open and probably about :30 or an hour afterwords. The ski check opperation is handled by guest services and I've always found them to be really nice and acomodating.

Here is an update from my trip on Friday. We did actually use the "ski check" outside by Union Creek and it was only $5 for the day...and we could come and get stuff out anytime we wanted to. There was one time when the guy was not there...but it worked out really well.

 

I really like Copper...great place! I had another ticket for Saturday and did some runs with some other friends of mine who are more advanced. I was more impressed that it was President's weekend and even though it was crowded, it was nothing like how Breck/Keystone is on that weekend. I am certainly buying a Copper pass next year! My friend took me over to ski Far East and what a fun run that was...even though big moguls kick my butt!

Now you just need to buy the little lady a ski in/out 1000sq.ft locker.

Haha...yeah, I wish. We actually have a small one-bedroom condo in Dillon Valley that we got when the market was way down three years ago...I think that will have to do! I will say that they have some really nice properties there at Copper...but four times the price!

Hope you found the elevator in the building.  Lots better than the steps with the 'unknowing' masses of kids.
