If you didn't have to transfer lifts, you didn't really make it to the top. Super Bee goes up pretty high, but you still need to hop on storm king. Eagle only goes a little over half way up. Flyer you can go up, but you still need to drop off indian ridge to hit (forgot name of lift) to get up to the top where you can hit union meadows and so forth. There isn't 1 lift that takes you to the top.
Where copper does excel is that the terrain is divided really well so that you typically don't have to worry about people that don't know what they are doing (except in the terrain park since it's technically in the easy zone). The eastern side of the mountain is pretty much all advanced, back bowls are "expert", middle is intermediate, west is beginner so its easy to avoid the easy stuff (except when you want to go to the terrain park). The shuttle system is also a lot more frequent than other resorts I've been to, so if you need to go to the different bases, it only takes a few minutes.
Statement void. Copper is a great family place and all... and I mean nothing bad by the above, just clarifying.
