I think they are very similar in lots of ways. What do you like to ski?

How long are you coming for and when? Are you interested in activities other than skiing?

Me I'd pick Keystone but then I like it so much I bought a place here!

Others will say Copper so it helps to know what you're hoping for. Both offer the opportunity for a great ski vacation.

"Best" is very subjective. As alli said we need more info from you about what you are looking for, etc.

I love Copper. I like the way the mountain naturally separates the experts from the beginners. I love the terrain, the accessibility, the small village atmosphere. We owned a condo @ Copper -- the accommodations are very nice.

It has been a long time since I've skied @ Keystone, so I can't make a recent comparison.

I was going to ask your level of experience, if you are beginner(s) Copper is preferable. As Babalax mentioned, the green runs are segregated, which is a safer and less stressful situation. Keystone has more terrain and more of a "nightlife", more restaurants etc. if that is important.

I can't comment on accommodations, but purely from a skiing standpoint, I prefer Copper. However, Keystone is also very good, and you won't be making a mistake by picking either area.
