Copper Mountain, Colorado, USA

The Famous Dry Colorado Powder

Experience some of the best snow in the world while training towards internationally recognized ski and snowboard qualifications. Conveniently located in the central Rocky Mountains, Copper Mountain is just 75 miles west of Denver’s international airport. With over 282 inches/710 centimeters of average snowfall, 22 lifts and 2,450 acres/985 hectares of terrain to play in, Copper is a perfect place to learn how to teach skiing and snowboarding.

Once-In-A-Lifetime Opportunity

Unique to Snow Trainers is the opportunity to spend a day in a life of an instructor. You’ll get to join the Copper Ski and Ride School instructors at morning line-up, watch their lessons, join them for lunch with the kids, and then follow them through the procedures as they wrap up at the end of the day. You will gain valuable, first-hand experience about the day-to-day life of an instructor. Throughout your course you will also have access to the employee cafeteria to buy discounted lunches, saving you money and making you really feel like one of the team at Copper.


Copper has a great town right at the base of the mountain with lots of excellent restaurants and plenty of night life. If you would like to continue your progression, check out Woodward, an amazing indoor freestyle training facility with foam-pits and trampolines and open until 10:00pm. You’re only a short distance from other Colorado resorts, including Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Loveland, and Breckenridge. This means there is plenty of entertainment on a free, short bus ride.

Comfortable Accomodation

Located in Frisco (between Copper and Breckenridge), your accommodation is fully furnished and within walking distance to multiple restaurants, bars, and shops.  Or if you would just like to take a hike on your day off, Frisco is located on the banks of Lake Dillon with picturesque, breathtaking views.
