This article is about the community. For the mountain, see Copper Mountain (Colorado).

Copper Mountain is a census-designated place (CDP) in Summit County, Colorado, United States.[1] Its elevation is 9,695 feet (2,955 m), and it is located at 39°30′24″N 106°8′32″W / 39.50667°N 106.14222°W / 39.50667; -106.14222 (39.5066533, -106.1422442).[2]

Located approximately 20 miles (32 km) north-northeast of Leadville in the White River National Forest. It was originally named "Wheeler" for a local judge and developer, and it has also been known as "Wheeler Station" in the past. The naming question was settled by a decision from the Board on Geographic Names, which ruled in favor of "Copper Mountain" in 1977.[2]
