      Save on Day Passes

      Even with this exciting expansion, 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! For the 2020-2021 season, you must buy your pass online in advance. This precaution applies to day and season passes.

      At Cooper, 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.
