At Ski Cooper, there’s no hustle, bustle, or man-made snow. And you’ll find short (or non-existent) lift lines and long, wide groomed runs. This is truly a return to the idyllic skiing of days of old. Because of it’s high elevation (11,000 ft) and annual average snowfall of 250 inches, in 1942 Ski Cooper was chosen to be the training site of the famed Tenth Mountain Army Division. These men lived and trained for high-alpine warfare at nearby Camp Hale, and because of the battles they won in Europe, became WWII heroes.
Our plan for this special day is first to take advantage of all the wonderful skiing Ski Cooper has to offer. Then it’s back to the Lodge for a hot and tasty lunch, followed by an inspirational presentation about the Tenth, led by members of the Tenth Mountain Associate Division, Paul Stubbe and Randy Hancock. This day promises to be a perfect combination of exercise, education, and enjoyment.
