An Affordable and Fun Mountain

Ski Cooper is located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains near Leadville, Colorado, in an area known for its world class skiing, and soft snow.

Ski Cooper is an exciting and affordable alternative to the hustle and bustle of the big, expensive resorts nearby, such as Breckenridge, Keystone, Vail and Beaver Creek, where skiing is merely an “amenity” for resort real estate.  But our philosophy is different at Ski Cooper.  Here, skiing is what matters.  You’ll find our lift lines are short and our runs are long.  No competing for parking, lift ticketsski rentals, or apres ski, just affordable prices and a variety of terrain for kids, teens and adults alike.  In fact, a full day of skiing at Ski Cooper is less than half the cost at those nearby resorts!  We know you want your vacation to include more than just lift tickets, so we make sure you can enjoy real Colorado skiing at a really affordable rate!

We’d love it if you and your family join us for an affordable, epic and unique day under sunshine and blue skies at Colorado’s fifth oldest ski area.

The Mountain

  • Is located atop Tennessee Pass 9 miles west of historic Leadville, Colorado on Highway 24, only 25-35 minutes from Copper Mountain, Summit County and Vail and Beaver Creek. 
  • Is known for abundant and REAL snow, lack of lift lines, affordability and skiing or riding for everyone.  The mountain has some of the best snow in the Rocky Mountains.
  • Has an unusually rich history and prime location, and has earned recognition as one of the nation’s most successful and innovative smaller ski areas.
  • Has parking within walking distance to the base area with ease – no need to worry about misplacing members of the family and spending the day rounding them up.
  • Is known as the training ground for the 10th Mountain Division in preparation for World War II.  Please visit the veterans’ Memorial at the entrance to Ski Cooper.
