Copper Mountain is a trip – a trip back to the brightly-colored, hip and wild hot-dog days of lifelong ski bums, tight ski suits and snow dancing. Well, maybe not all that – but they do sport an old-school dedication to skiers and boarders who have one thing in mind: Sliding down some of the most exciting mountains in Colorado, at top speed. With 22 lifts and 126 trails, Copper covers almost 2,500 acres with cool, crystallized fun and sport. Taking the ski bus from Denver is the perfect, relaxing way to start and end your visit, and let you wallow in the memories of over 2,600 vertical feet of pure bliss, rather than I-70 traffic.
We offer two round trip ski bus trips to Copper every weekend – enough to get you and your all your friends and family up on the slopes for a fun-filled day, or a weekend. Copper has also been hip and kind enough to arrange for some sweet ski lift discounts, too, exclusively for Front Range Ski Bus passengers. Ride the ski bus to Copper and you can pick up an adult all-day lift ticket for $65 (normally $118), and child’s all-day lift ticket for $50 (normally $62). Remember – we also offer one-way trips, which means you can take the ski bus from Denver to Copper Mountain and stay the whole weekend!

Parking: There’s plenty of FREE parking at Wooly Mammoth Park & Ride. Union Station only offers pay parking, except for Sundays, but Central Parking offers an $8 all-day parking garage within walking distance.
Pricing: We offer the most economical round trip ski bus in the Front Range, and take all the stress and worry about traffic out of your mind. And, since we operate on a round-trip basis, we also find that many people on the mountain find that they need to take the ski bus to Denver, too, so we offer one-way pricing as well.
Thanks to the bus and Copper Mountain Ski Resort, you can save $$$ off your lift ticket, and the wait at the ticket window! Buy your lift ticket on the bus (Adult lift tickets only $65) and when you get off head straight for the slopes.
