  • Ski Cooper was perfect for our family trip. Their runs are very doable for kids and beginners, but they also offer a few runs for intermediate. Their blacks are more like blues, but still offer some fun. The runs are short enough for kids to enjoy without getting too tired. Overall, it's great for a family trip, but if you're looking for but bowls or solid blacks, you won't find them here. I love skiing with my kids, and Cooper was a fantastic place for that!
  • This simply is a great place to ski. Like most reviews state, it is family friendly - actually they are just people friendly. All of the staff we met or dealt with were friendly and professional. No lines, good prices and good skiing. What else can you ask for...? Well, right next to Ski Cooper there is an equally good Nordic Center with fantastic staff, also great prices and great trails for X-country skiing. This really is a great place. I highly recommend it and will return here again.
  • Loved every minute of this place. Where to start... Perfect snow, friendly help and just easy relaxed skiing. We booked a snowboard lesson for our teen and he was lucky to have an amazing instructor, Ryan, all to himself. Not only was Ryan patient, but he was super kind and a skilled teacher. We ate at Katie O'rourkes for lunch and it was delicious and the staff was great. Check out their special lift prices for weekdays and don't miss this awesome, easy and fun ski place!
  • LOVE SKI COOPER!!! My sis and I haven't skied in about 20 years...Cooper was perfect for us! Definitely worth the extra drive time. Smaller resort but not crowded! We felt like we were alone on some runs. No wait for the lifts!!! Super affordable, like unheard of prices! $30 for a Thursday, Amazing! We also rented our gear there. Very convenient and the gear was in excellent condition. We bought our lunch at the cafeteria and it was what we expected, nothing too fancy. Everyone was very friendly too. Thanks Ski Cooper! We'll definitely be back!
  • For a family looking for a place to ski, there’s no place better in the state of Colorado! You could spend $600 to $ 700 for ONE day of skiing at Breckenridge, Vail, Aspen or several other resorts in Colorado ( not including rentals), OR you can Stop the insanity, and go to Ski Cooper, were two adults and two kids can ski for about $160 total ! They have an excellent ski school, a lodge where people can easily meet, with reasonably priced food options, fairly priced ski rentals, and even a separate Nordic Center, where someone preferring to snowshoe or cross country ski can have a great time as well! I’m talking to all of you Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, and other folks who come to Colorado over Christmas break or spring break! You can also purchase a Colorado GEMS card in the fall, which gives you additional savings at Ski Cooper, Eldora, Sunlight, and other ski areas in CO !
