Uphill Access Routes 3 and 4 Map

This is the route you can use for uphill access during operating hours at Copper Mountain. It utilizes the resort's designated uphill routes #3 and #4, starting with #4 out of West Village.

Description

You'll begin on the cross-country trails, following signs and flagging which mark the route. Eventually, you'll cross over the ski run West Ten Mile and continue on the flagged route through a few hundred feet of trees.

Emerging at the top of the Lumberjack lift completes route #4, so you could ski down any run down from there. To continue on route #3, however, you'll transition and ski down Clear Cut (or shortcut on 1-Way) to the bottom of Copperfield run. Then skin all the way up Copperfield, which ends at the green run Soliloquy. Return down Copperfield or Soliloquy and back to West Village from there.

Note that Copper Mountain requires an Uphill Access Pass, which must be purchased. You can find more information and get the pass on their website.
