Ski Cooper Opens New Advanced RunsJanuary 17, 2020
[Updated Dec. 1, 2020]
Ski Cooper opened new double black diamond ski runs in early 2020! Come discover 70 skiable acres of new advanced terrain!
New Tennessee Creek Basin Double Black Diamonds
- Powder Stache and Solstice: Glades with steep grades
- Bumpus Rumpus and Swan Song: Two of the area’s eight new chutes
- Maverick and Viper: Cleared runs
At the new Tennessee Creek Basin, you can explore 19 new named trails, all served by a new lift. Discover 16 new double blacks and 3 new black diamond runs. The advanced terrain adds a fresh dimension to Cooper’s family-friendly vibe. Now, you can bring all your family and friends to Cooper, whether they’re expert or newbie skiers or boarders. With a total 59 trails, five lifts, and terrain variety to choose from, groups of all ability levels will find something to love at Cooper. Plan your visit today!
Please note: Before entering Tennessee Creek Basin, please make sure you are ready to descend Double Black Diamond terrain. If you have questions in your mind about your ability to handle this terrain, DON’T GO – work on your skiing first.
Also, when riding up the Little Horse T-Bar, you must stay in the uphill track (directly under the haul cable). If you ski or ride outside this straight track, it can pull the haul cable from the wheels and close the lift. That means you and your friends might have to hike up!
If you’re looking for uncrowded slopes, Ski Cooper is the place for you. Our 470 skiable acres means you have plenty of space to spread out! See Ski Cooper’s latest plans to keep you safe during the 2020-2021 season.
Skip the Lines
One thing Ski Cooper doesn’t have is lift lines or ticket lines!
All season passes, day passes, and rentals will be loaded onto the Cooper Key Card (RFID). Please go online before your visit to create your profile, upload your photo, and sign any waivers. Once you get your card, you will never stand in the ticket line again – just proceed directly to the lift with your loaded card.
For the 2020-2021 season, you must buy your pass online in advance. This precaution applies to day and season passes.
Ski & Board for Less
Even with this exciting expansion, one thing hasn’t changed—Cooper is still one of the least crowded and most affordable resorts in Colorado. If you ski a lot, buy a season pass and get great on that new black diamond terrain! Remember, this season you may only buy passes in advance, online.
