posted: 07/21/2004

Copper Mountain Resort: 2,433 skiable acres; 2,601 vertical feet; summit elevation 12,313 feet; 284 annual inches; 125 trails; 22 lifts, including one high-speed six-pack, four high-speed quads. Tickets: $64 adults; $36 kids 6—13; $54 seniors 65—69.

Lodging: The new condos at the Village at Copper are near the lifts and great for families. Try Passage Point, Taylor's Crossing or the Tucker Mountain Lodge. All have kitchens, outdoor hot tubs and fitness rooms (rates range from $144—$300 per night). The East Village has fewer amenities, but Copper Springs Lodge is right across from the Super Bee six-pack (rates from $127—$298 per night). When it opens in April, The Cirque will feature one- to three-bedroom villas. Call for rates. Book through Copper Reservations, 888-219-2441.

Dining: The upscale Alexander's on the Creek (970-968-2165) is the newest restaurant. Drop the kids off at CopperCade (the arcade in the village) and make it a dinner for two. With the family, JJ's Rocky Mountain Tavern (970-968-2318 ext. 83062), in the East Village, has a kid-friendly menu.

AprÈs-Ski: Folksy guitarist Moe Dixon is a local legend at JJ's, performing Thursday through Saturday, though it's a younger scene at the Russian vodka bar Pravda, where the bartenders pour upside-down martinis from atop the bar.

Getting There: Copper is a straight shot on I-70 West from Denver International Airport, 75 miles. Take Exit 195 and follow the signs to the resort.Information 800-458-8386; coppercolorado.com
