Q: How do I know I'm getting a good unit?

Want to make sure you’re getting a good unit, see it online with complete photos AND panoramic photos of most units. Rent from others, and you may get the next condo on the list.

Q: What is SkyRun Vacation Rentals Copper?

A: SkyRun Copper (formally CopperDirect) is locally owned and operated and has been in business since 2001, at Copper Mountain.  SkyRun Vacation Rentals has over 200 condos, townhomes, and homes in the Summit County area.  As a property owner at Copper Mountain since 1993, we understand the importance and value of great memories year after year. We try to pass our love of Copper Mountain, and the Rocky Mountains (Winter and Summer!) to our guests.

Our simple strategy is to offer the best value to our guests.  We do this by keeping our costs low.  We make sure every guest has a great experience, offering lots of great deals on food, equipment, and activities.  Keeping our guests happy and ready to return again for another great experience is our primary goal.  Of course sharing their experience with friends is a plus too!

Q: Can we purchase Secret Pass Lift Tickets, Rentals, Ski-N-Ride Lessons?

A: SkyRun qualify for great rates on Secret Pass Lift Tickets (skip the lift lines) often saving you hundreds of dollars for a family of four over during your stay.  In addition we provide great discounts for rentals.  We can also make reservations for Ski-N-Ride (group and private lessons). 

Q: What’s included?

A: Our condos come fully furnished with everything from a Microwave, two or more TV’s, a VCR, a DVD player, linens and towels, hair dryers, dishes, pots and pans (right down to the corkscrew).  We sweat the details and start you out with supplies like shampoo, conditioner, Kleenex, paper towels, dishwasher detergent, soaps, trash bags, etc.  We provide everything you expect from a fine hotel.

All televisions include cable system and have over 50 channels including HBO and Disney Channel. Local and 1-800 number calls are free and there is free high speed internet (wired and wireless) in MOST units. 

Condos and Town homes also come with free parking for one vehicle close to your condo and free parking for additional vehicles in other lots within the resort. Most homes have parking for two vehicles in a garage, and parking for up to two more vehicles in the driveway. Most units also include a ski locker (usually on the ground floor) so you don't need to take up condo space with all your heavy, bulky and wet skis, boards etc. Many SkyRun Copper units also contain upgrades like Video Games, home theaters, CD stereos, etc.  See individual listings for the upgrades that are included.

Q: How does Travel Insurance Work?

A: Travel insurance is added by default when you book a property with us, however you can optionally remove it.  The cost is 7% of your reservation.  If you do NOT have travel insurance, you can not cancel your reservation for any reason.  If you have insurance and you cancel for any covered reason* (basically anything other than a change of mind), you can get all or part of your reservation payment back.

After you pick up your keys, you will be just minutes away from Copper and your Condo or Home. 

If you will be arriving late (8 pm in the winter, 5 pm in the summer), we have a lock-box at the Check-In Center.  The combination for the lock-box will be in your confirmation letter or call us if you will be late and we'll provide it.

A: NO PETS and NO SMOKING (including on the balconies) are allowed in any of our properties.    This is STRICTLY ENFORCED.  Quiet time starts at 10:00pm (resort rule). We also require a $300 deposit OR your credit card number on file for each property, which will be refunded two weeks after your departure, after we have confirm there are no damages or missing items.

Q:  What does the accidental damage waiver cover?

A: All reservations include a $45.00 accidental damage waiver which covers up to $1,500 of “accidental” damages to the property during your stay.  You are required to report any accidental damages prior to your departure.  This does not cover damages which result from abuse or parties.

Q: How is renting from SkyRun Copper different from renting from Copper Mountain Lodging/Powdr Copper ?

A: One main difference is the cost.

  • We are normally about 10% less than renting the same unit directly from the resort on their web site.
    • Other differences are:We don't make money on your phone calls.  Our phone is hooked directly to the phone company, not the resort switchboard. This means that you don't pay for local and 1-800 calls.  Long distance is through your credit card or collect. By contrast, every local or 1-800 number call from a resort phone may cost as much as  $.75. per call, sometimes more.  Long distance is $4.71 for the first MINUTE for long distance and $.86 PER MINUTE after that!
      • We do not provide daily housekeeping service during your visit.  However, daily or mid-week housekeeping is available at an additional charge.  Please make arrangements prior to or upon check-in.    Our units include cleaning supplies and vacuum cleaners if you feel the need to tidy up. All buildings have laundry facilities and several units include washers and dryers in the units.  You can also exchange your linens for fresh ones at the check-in center free of charge.
        • You don't check in at the resort check-in, you check in at the SkyRun check-in center.
          • We also include extras in most rooms (Wireless Internet, DVD players, Home Theaters, Game Consoles). Check the individual rooms for details on what’s in the room you’re renting.


            Q: How is renting from SkyRun Copper different from renting directly from a Condo Owner?

            A: All of the condos and homes that SkyRun Copper represents are owned by private investors.  SkyRun Copper manages the properties as the local contact for you as the guests of the owner.  This means you have one point of contact that you can trust with your credit card information and trust that we will be there for your family or group, should the need arise. 

            We believe that SkyRun Copper offers the best of all worlds.  Full Service like renting from the Resort, offering lower prices and access to locals-only discounts, while knowing you are getting the best possible rates renting directly from the owner.

            Q: Is SkyRun Copper related to Copper Mountain Lodging or Powdr Resorts?

            A: SkyRun Copper is one of several property management firms that operate in or near Copper Mountain.  SkyRun Copper LLC is NOT affiliated with Copper Mountain Lodging or Powder Resorts which operates Copper Mountain.  However, we work closely together to make sure our mutual guests are happy and come back year after year.
