Conference Location

Copper Mountain Resort

Copper Mountain is not a city or a town - its a resort!  The entire restort is managed by one company, so you only have to make one call to reserve a hotel or condo...and the entire conference area is within easy walking of your room (see details below).  *To receive special group rates, reference Nurse Educators Conference (or 4501) when calling the reservations office. 

There are various lodging options: hotel-style rooms and studios, as well as one-, two-, and three-bedroom condos.  Copper Mountain Athletic Club and Spa are available to resort guests,  featuring an indoor pool, exercise and cardio rooms, and select spa services.  There are unique restaurants and pubs between the three villages and on the mountain.


Enjoy world-class outdoor activity on over 2,400 acres of naturally divided terrain, catering to every ability level.  The base elevation is 9,712 feet.  Copper Creek Golf Course has the highest championship tee-box in North America at 9,863 feet (on hole 14).


NEC Attendees will have an opportunity to experience all the fun in Copper - just buy a super special rate ($39.00) activities pass and ride the roller coaster, take the lift, crash a few bumper cars, and much more!
