Cooper's trail map without any labels

Pure, authentic, down-to-earth skiing. That’s what we’re all about at Cooper. Our mountain offers you 39 trails served by 4 lifts, spanning 400 lift-served acres. And if you’re in the mood for an even bigger adventure, our snowcat skiing tours on Chicago Ridge deliver you long, epic runs on 2,600 acres of wide-open powder bowls and glades.

Our Snow is the Difference

What makes the skiing at Cooper better than anywhere else? Our snow! Mother Nature graces us with an average of about 260″ of natural fluffy stuff each season, and our high base elevation (10,500′) means that our snow stays dry and light. And we’re here to supplement Mother Nature’s efforts as well, with our unique grooming philosophy. Unlike our neighbors, Cooper doesn’t believe in over-grooming trails, which results in hardpack conditions. Instead, we rotate our grooming terrain, which means you always get the softest snow surface possible, while still providing you with plenty of groomed variety every day.

So whether you’re looking to try out the sport for the first time on our gentle EZ-Street beginner’s area, or looking for seamless cruising corduroy, or in the mood to bash some big bumps or weave through the glades, Cooper’s got you covered.
