COOPER IS DIFFERENT
So you want to go on a ski vacation. Great! You’ve got lots of choices. Colorado has many of the finest ski resorts in North America. But you said you wanted to go on vacation, right? Doesn’t that mean you want to escape the fast-paced hustle & bustle, the crowds, the high-rises? Vacation is supposed to be fun & relaxing for the whole family, right? You don’t want to have to worry about your kids getting lost in a sea of bodies, do you? You don’t want to escape the daily grind only to end up standing in a lift line, do you? You don’t want to pay an arm and a leg to slide around on icy, hard man-made snow, do you? No? We didn’t think so!
Cooper is different. We’re not like the mega resorts. We don’t do crowds. We don’t do lift lines. We don’t do pretension. We don’t do hustle & bustle. We don’t do high-rise condos. We don’t do movie star prices. We don’t do hard man-made “snow.”
Here are the things that Cooper does – Soft all-natural snow, terrain variety for everyone, down-to-earth laid-back atmosphere, family-friendly vibe, smiling faces, great food & drinks, and prices that allow you to bring the whole family. It all boils down to this: Cooper brings you the very essence of the authentic skiing experience, with none of the frustrating baggage that you’ll fight through at the mega resorts. Cooper is truly The Heart of Skiing in the Heart of the Rockies.
That’s why Cooper is different!
