Changes for Ski Cooper

New children's center at Ski Cooper

No, there aren't any luxury homes popping up around the state's smallest ski resort. But there are some noticeable improvements this season. and long-time employees are thrilled. Cooper, which has been open on weekends and is now open seven days a week, has a new Children's Center building housing children's ski school and a nursery. Thc ticket windows have also been relocated, and the old ski school building is now a spacious employee building. The improvements came about after last year's impressive 13 percent gain in skier visits. But that doesn't mean Cooper's slopes are crowded. This weekend, many of the trails hadn't been skied since the snowfall earlier in the week and the skiing was as good as it gets.
If you haven't checked out Cooper yet and if you have a Gems card or know someone who does, this could be your lucky week - skiing is free with a Gems card Monday through Thursday (this week only).
The cards are gone for the season. If you've been missing out, make a note to get one for next year - it offers discounts at eight areas, including Monarch, Arapahoe Basin and Loveland.
