Lake County's Ski Cooper
This venue is the original training ground for the famed 10th Mountain Division and is now a modern ski area for the whole family with alpine skiing, telemarking, cross country skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling available.
we really liked the smaller ski area, and being able to go up high where you can really enjoy the beautiful scenery. We are pretty much novice skiers, but were comfortable after 2 days of skiing to go on the blues which I thought I would never be able to do. The snow was great as it snowed every day we were there. Our experience was very comfortable and relaxed. Thank You Ski Cooper
I hate to be the one to give away the best kept secret in skiing, but after eight years of skiing this area we have found Ski Cooper is the best place to go without long lines. The snow has never disappointed us, even in a bad year, although we do go in January or Febuary when it is a little cold.
The employees are friendly and helpful. The lodge has good hot drinks and a great view even if you don't ski. The Hospitality Host may even take you up for a run and give you a few pointers to improve your style.
The town is quite in the evening, but has a few good eating places to discuss the day's activities. We have also taken snowmobile tours and visited the museums. There is a very nice library in town.
