Copper Mountain Resort has three pedestrian-friendly village areas that provide a vibrant atmosphere with lodging, retail outlets, restaurants, bars and family activities. During the winter months, Copper's naturally-divided terrain offers world-class skiing and riding for all ages and abilities. Each summer, the mountain transforms into an unspoiled playground for hikers, mountain bikers and all those seeking a genuine Colorado experience.

There is an online link to make reservations from July 13 - 19. (Note the last day of the conference is Thursday, July 18th). Please note that if you want rooms outside this block you MUST CALL the Resort directly. They should be able to add additional rooms to your reservations. Also, and this is very important, if you try to book a within our dates and you get a "there are no rooms available" notification, that doesn't mean the Resort is full. Most likely ONE of the nights has filled up and so the reservations system won't make a reservation if one of the nights has blocked out. PLEASE call the Resort directly and they should be able to make a reservation for you.
It has come to our attention that there is a company calling some of our speakers claiming to represent FOCAPD as their official housing booking bureau. They go by the names of BTM (Business Travel Management), EHS (Exhibitor Housing Services) and EHM (Exhibitor Housing Management).
This is a SCAM.
Please do NOT provide any personal information to anyone calling on behalf of FOCAPD. The individuals calling make a number of false and fraudulent claims about the conference designed to obtain your credit card information.
