Copper Ridge is the largest subdivision in Whitehorse but will one day be overtaken by Whistlebend. Located 15 min from Downtown atop of Two Mile Hill giving many of the homes great views. The subdivision started to take form in the mid-’90s and was mostly built out by 2010. With a diversity of housing types, Copper Ridge is very family orientated and has something for everyone, duplexes, ranchers and luxury homes. Most of the streets are quiet except for Falcon Drive, which is the main loop road. If you want to take the kids to the park, there are four.
