Summertime at Ski Cooper

As I look out my office window on this sunny afternoon at the now green slopes of Ski Cooper, I am reminded of why I wanted to be here in this beautiful part of the Rockies.  The blue skies and pristine environment, filled with abundant wildlife, make Ski Cooper and all of Lake County, a paradise for those who enjoy the great outdoors.

On the Mountain, Tim Kerrigan and his crew have been busy performing a variety of maintenance activities on Cooper’s lifts and other equipment.  Tim is also working with Leitner-Poma (the manufacturer of the Piney Triple Chairlift) on the design, manufacture and installation of comfort bars with footrests for the Piney Triple.  We think this will be a welcome addition for our guests, especially those with younger children.

We are also in the planning stages of a complete remodel of our Rental Shop, an area where we admittedly experienced serious traffic flow issues in the past (akin to heading east on I-70 on a Sunday afternoon!).  As the summer progresses, I will report on progress and details of this work.  I am very excited at the prospect of offering a streamlined rental process, allowing our skiers to spend more time on the slopes and less time in line in the shop!

If you are considering a season pass for the upcoming ski season, please note that we have decided to offer the same low “early” pass price as last season.  You can purchase online at the “early” rate through September 30.  You won’t find a better deal anywhere!

That’s all for now.  Enjoy the summer, but remember it’s only 176 days until opening day!
