Copper Mountain, Colorado
It is 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.
