Ski Cooper is an alpine ski resort in Colorado, one of the oldest in the state. Opened as Cooper Hill Ski Area 75 years ago in 1941, it now has two chairlifts (double and triple), one platter lift, and one magic carpet conveyor lift. Cooper is located at Tennessee Pass, at the dividing line between the San Isabel National Forest and the White River National Forest, near Leadville.
During World War II, Ski Cooper served as the training site for the 10th Mountain Division, based at nearby Camp Hale, and continues to host a Memorial Day celebration for the World War II veterans of this division. Ski Cooper is also home to the Chicago Ridge Snowcat Tours which provides access to 2,400 acres (9.7 km2) of backcountry skiing.
Ski Cooper markets itself as a family resort because of its affordability and accessibility. It is among the most affordable ski areas in the state, second to only Howelsen Hill in Steamboat Springs. An all day lift ticket at Ski Cooper cost $50.00 during the 2015/16 ski season. It has ample beginner and intermediate terrain and all-natural snow. Ski Cooper also has glade and tree skiing areas, and began to offer mogul skiing terrain in the 2012/13 ski season. Many people note that the lift lines are shorter than larger nearby ski resorts.
