    You can ski at Ski Cooper for less that half the cost of most other Colorado Ski areas. Short lift lines and a family friendly atmosphere are its strong points. It sits right at the top of Tennessee P...  more »

    Ski Cooper is a jewel. It isn't the biggest or steepest or longest. It IS, however, a landmark in skiing history. It was a training area for the famed 10th Mountain Division during WWII. Many of those soldiers went on to found other ski areas and develop ski products, contributing to the rich ski heritage that we enjoy in Colorado. A first rate ski school, an active competition department and fine natural snow are just some of the reasons to visit this locally owned and operated testament to the power of skiing to add life to our lives.

    Came here as a family and had two kids who had never skied before. It was perfect. We had such a good time and didn't have to stress about spending SO much money like at the mega resorts. Lift tickets are about $50 for adults and $30 for kids. They also have two for one deals so call and ask. The staff is super friendly! We never waited in line once and had fresh powder and open slopes. Got the kids into ski school which was very good and affordable. They were skiing by the end of the day. The views are wonderful and the slopes were very open. This is skiing the way it once was. I could not recommend this more highly. Just don't bring too many people and ruin it for the rest of us ;)!

    Wow. And I mean wow! This has been my absolute favorite Colorado ski resort ever. I'm an intermediate and I often find the bigger places are a little too crowded and don't have the best green runs. The powder was soft. The lift lines took a minute on average. It was awesome. Now, a few cons (if you can call them that): The lifts are ***slow***. Now, because you aren't waiting it kind of evens out. And the runs are pretty long. It didn't bother me at all. Also, what they call greens are super easy, and the blues could be called greens. I didn't try any blacks but from what I could tell those looked more like blues. If you're looking for tough terrain I hear there is a pretty neat back bowl you can get to with the ridge cats.

    Best family ski area and a Local favorite! Affordable and rarely have to wait in a lift line. Bar is cozy and warm. Don't expect a resort! This is a simple ski lodge with a historic past. Very family friendly but also popular with singles and young people.

    Got kids? Got someone still learning to tie turns together? Want to ride all day and never wait in chair lines? This is your place, slappy.
