Copper Mountain Bike Park Overview
Copper Mountain has a mellow, friendly vibe in the summer with lift-accessed all-mountain singletrack and service roads. One chairlift, the American Eagle chair, brings riders and bikes up for a great beginner's experience or more challenging singletrack trails for more experienced riders. The service roads also provide access for anyone who prefers to ride uphill.
The relaxed vibe and trail network makes a family friendly biking area, with base village and many other activities and biking options. The mountain is at high-elevation, between about 10-12,000 feet, so riders should be aware if planning on riding uphill.
Take in the views, have lunch at Solitude, ride down. We’ll haul you and your mountain bike up the American Eagle chairlift ($15/day) for you to ride down. A central location and endless riding options naturally put Copper at the center of Colorado's biking scene.
Hundreds of miles of road biking terrain - much of it on the state's most scenic mountain by-ways and paved bike paths - are accessible from the resort.
Special Promotion for 2014
Copper Mountain is offering free round-trip rides on the American Eagle chairlift with a $10 purchase in the Copper Village. You may think it’s spending $10 anywhere in the village to get a free chairlift ride. But it’s spending $10 on something awesome and then riding the chairlift for free. (Weather permitting)

Every bike park has something unique to offer. And we're out there getting the scoop as fast as we can. While we wish we could hit all the trails at once and give you the low down on all the riding across the land, we only have so many hours and days to cover so many bike parks.
If you have trail descriptions, videos and/or photos for this bike park, send them our way.
