First timer looking for lift tickets at Copper Mtn

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
My wife and I will be going skiing for the first time in a couple of weeks. We have decided to go to Copper Mountain. We are both considering taking lessons but haven't decide on that for sure yet. We will be skiing for two days and would like to know where the best place is to get cheap lift tickets.

Thanks for any and all help. We can use all the help we can get.

Lessons are a good idea...I think you can save a few bucks if you sign up on the Copper website.

As are as tickets go, you will likely start on the magic carpet which doesn't require a ticket. I think they have 3 of these, but I have only taken my daughter on 1 of them so far. Copper also has a short beginner chair lift for which the (unchecked) ticket is $10/day. Depending on how you progress, this may be all you need for a two day trip.

You could also see if they have any first timer packages which may combine lessons and rentals.

Mike_M is an instructor at Copper, so he may be able to answer more questions or hook you up with a family private lesson if you are interested.

Thanks for the input. I think that I will do at least a half day lesson on the first day and see how it goes after that. Does anybody else have any suggestions on lift tickets? I checked at King Soopers and they are $75 a day there.

They are $92.00/day at the window. If you buy multi-days on the Copper website, they are probably cheaper. Some people have been known to look at the Denver Craigslist.

Copper is a GREAT mountain....you will have a blast!

For cheap lift tickets don't forget to try eBay: http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trk...All-Categories

As you probably saw in the above link, you can buy 2 for 1 coupons for copper on ebay. Those coupons come from the denver e-book, which you can buy at http://eduproject.com/ for $10 and get alot of other coupons also, while supporting a fundraising group instead of someone looking to profit off selling coupons on ebay.

I'm going to colorado in feb. and copper with the 2 for 1 coupon seems to be about the best deal around.

As other have said the BOGO coupons in the E-book is the best deal out there for Coppper. The Entertainment books also has some deals.
Drop me a PM, were low on Bogo's but think we got a good stack of $43-$55 discounts along with others. Were willing to part with 42 cents. And who knows might even bump into you!

Mr. Vertical, I tried to send you a pm but couldn't since my post count is not high enough. Can you please email me at natek24@yahoo.com with info on the lift tickets.

Can anybody give me some suggestions for ski lessons? I would like to take a half day of ski lessons. Is there a website that has all the information? What time do they start? How much and are there any discounts?

Thanks for helping out a beginner. I didn't realize how much was involved with planning a ski trip for the first time.

Copper's website lists the different options they have for lessons. http://www.coppercolorado.com/ski_an...ults/index.htm

The rates seem pretty reasonable, if you have more questions I would just give them a call. Also consider other places in the area for lessons, loveland seems to have pretty reasonable prices at their ski school.

Just go up to any instructor and ask for a referral card. I'm not sure what they are offering at Copper, but it should be around $10.00 off a half day lesson or $25.00 off a half day or full day private lesson.
