Cooper is a family-friendly ski resort located 9 miles outside Leadville, and just 45 miles NW of Buena Vista. At Cooper, we provide our guests with a ski get-away like you won’t find anywhere else. When you come to Cooper, you’re not just another customer; you’re a member of the Cooper Family. We pride ourselves on providing unparalleled skiing quality and the friendliest service, and all at absurdly affordable prices. Discover skiing the way it should be as you explore 60 varied runs, from the finest learning terrain in the country, to smooth cruisers, to powder, glades, tree-skiing and bumps! Check out the new Tennessee Creek Basin with double black diamond tree-skiing. Wash the day down with a microbrew in Katie O Rourke s Irish pub.
Cooper is truly “The Heart of Skiing in the Heart of the Rockies”. 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 crowds, 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 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!).
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.
