My two boys ages 6 and 9 and I just returned from a six night stay at Copper One in the Center Village. I found our 1 bedroom unit posted on VRBO and got a very good price for a well decorated and equipped rental with an unbeatable slopeside location. The room itself is compact and could have used a little more storage space, but it was adequate. We purchased lift tickets with the management company and were comped Bee-line upgrades which meant no waiting, not that the longest wait that I witnessed lasted more than a minute or two. For the first four days, we got only traces of new snow, so conditions weren't ideal with occassional patches of icy hardpack and bare spots. Fortunately, on the last day, six inches of snow fell, and we enjoyed some of the best skiing I've experienced since I cared to track conditions. The mountain was big enough to surprise us with unexplored trails to the last day. The ski school compares favorably to Park CIty, Okemo, Seven Springs and others. Our private instructor Jay was excellent and very attentive, guiding the kids through little hidden trails decorated for the little ones. The boys improved their techniques markedly over the week.
It's a shame that the village empties after the lifts close, since it seems as if plenty has been spent on the infrastructure; the place could easily acccomodate larger croowds. I hope the investors are making enough with these sparse crowds to continue to add amenities. Since I'm here with the kids for skiing and not so much apres skiing, I found the quiet village to be just right for us. For a ski resort, food was OK. For on mountain dining, Jack's Grill offers well-prepared typical ski lodge fare plus a few surprises including a decent Pho. Pizzas from Carlo's were tasty. CB Grill was a fine dining spot, deserving a return visit our last night. If shopping, nightlife and dinig is important, consider living at the other resorts further down I-70W. If skiing and value is most important, Copper should be close to the top of the list as a place to take the kids.
