Cooper is different.

At Cooper, we’re not like our neighbors. We’re different. And that’s a good thing! Think about it: do you really want to spend your “get-a-way” ski vacation wading through bodies, waiting in lift lines, stuck in the same hustle and bustle that you find in the city, scratching and sliding on hard, overworked man-made snow, and having to part with your life savings to do it? No? We didn’t think so. And that’s where we come in!

Cooper offers top-notch Colorado skiing, with the absolute best and softest snow surface in the state. We’re the most authentic Colorado ski resort you’ll find. We have terrain variety for all abilities, including the finest learning and beginner terrain in the country, up through epic powder, glades, and bumps. We have the friendliest smiling faces ensuring the most family-friendly atmosphere you’ll find. We have no lift lines (unless you consider 1-2 minutes a lift line!). We have a ski and ride school that will get you on the snow and having fun or tweak your skills to take you to the next level in our renowned ski and snowboard lessons and clinics,. We have plenty of tasty food & bev options in the cafeteria, and an Irish Pub for lunch and apres-ski fun that would make Katie O’Rourke herself blush.

And guess what? You can afford it. And you can afford to bring the family for a fun ski trip. So forget about the high-rolling places. They may sound glamorous in the ads, but if you want to experience skiing the way it SHOULD be, you’ll find your home with the Cooper family.

Discover Cooper

One of the oldest ski resorts in the US, Cooper boasts its origins with the soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division, who cut the first trails on Cooper Hill for training excercises.

With 400 in-bounds acres to explore, you have 39 varied trails served by 4 lifts. If you want more, help yourself to the 2,600 acres of wide-open powder bowls and epic glades served by snowcat tours on Chicago Ridge.

If you’re a Cooper insider, there’s one thing you know for certain: our snow is the softest snow around. That’s thanks to our all-natural snow base, and our trend-bucking grooming strategy that focuses on quality over quantity.
