    5 Reasons to Spend A Weekend at Cooper

    Mar 22 | 772 Views | 2 Comments

    Cooper is an unpretentious outpost and the perfect place to learn to ski and ride. Each winter, our family spends one to two weekends at Cooper. Compare Cooper’s stats some of the behemoth resorts down the road, and it’s easy to overlook Cooper’s unassuming 400 acres. Yet this storied ski...

    Good Skiing Can Happen to You

    The economy is in the toilet, we get it. Jobs are scarce, understood. These days we are all having to make tough decisions about where to spend our already limited discretionary dollars.

    That said, Colorado has nearly a half million skiers and riders living in the state, and having world class skiing and riding in our back yards is one of the reasons many of us live here. That’s why this year, Colorado Ski Country resorts are working hard to come up with creative ways to make it easy to get some good skiing in this winter.

    Two For The Records

    The Colorado ski season bounded to one of its earliest starts ever this season with Loveland Ski Area opening its chair lifts to skiers and riders on October 7th and Arapahoe Basin opening on October 9th. Loveland’s opening day of October 7th is the earliest the resort has opened in 40 years and Arapahoe Basin’s opening on the 9th is the earliest on record that resort has opened.

    The race to be the first Colorado ski resort to open is intense these days, especially as Colorado Ski Country is experiencing colder temperatures, early season snow fall, and conditions conducive for snowmaking. The race to open can be likened to a beauty pageant where snowmaking is the Botox used to enhance what Mother Nature provides.IMGP2340

  • Making the Grade

    on September 28 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off on Making the Grade

    One score, minus seven years ago, Colorado Ski Country USA launched the 5th Grade Passport Program to provide the means to introduce all 5th graders to skiing and snowboarding in Colorado. All you had to do to qualify was be in 5th grade. Simple as that, just make it though the 4th grade, and you were eligible for a full season of skiing on the 5th Grade Passport. Today, CSCUSA has helped introduce more than 200,000 families to Colorado skiing with the popular program, and we are offering it again this year.

    We know its coming. It happens every year. And yet it inevitably seems to comes early, or when we least expect it, and I swear it’s always on a Monday. I’m talking about the first snow. It happened this week (Sunday night) and by Monday morning it was official – there’s snow on the mountains in Colorado Ski Country. (photo from Arapahoe Basin/Kimberly Trembearth)A-Basin1

    And so it begins, the count down ’till ski season. The summer of 2009 is dead to us. Here at Colorado Ski Country USA, we feel like the New Year started the day after Labor Day, because from now on it’s full speed ahead to Opening Day, but more on that later.

  • The End is Near, and We’re OK with That

    on August 31 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off on The End is Near, and We’re OK with That

    The end is near and there’s nothing we can do about it. For those not yet convinced here are the signs: season pass sales have begun at Colorado Ski Country resorts, sales on last season’s equipment are popping up, ski magazines have come out with their 2009-10 gear reviews, night time temperatures are dipping below 55 degrees, and even lower in the high country, and this weekend is Labor Day, the official unofficial end of summer.

    Copper Country Festival at Copper MountainAs is customary in Colorado Ski Country, we go out in style, and this year’s end of summer is no different. Resorts everywhere are hosting festivals, concerts and competitions. The question is though, are they celebrating the end of summer or the beginning of winter? Either way, there is a lot happening in Ski Country.

    Hiking at Arapahoe Basin

    We’ve had a few questions about the GEMS card and just announced that the 2009-10 Colorado GEMS card is now for sale, and have already sold a handful of them. They go for $10 each and the money collected from sales of the card goes right back into the GEMS program. The GEMS is its own unique little program within the Colorado Ski Country USA organization and the GEMS resorts have a somewhat cultish following.

    SunlightMaybe you’ve caught glimpses of them in the lift lines. Or perhaps you used one once and remember being surprised at feeling the weight of it around your neck. People always ask about it when they see one, “is that one of those passes that works at all the Colorado resorts?” And then they want to touch it and get a close up look at it.

    While they are available each year, there are limited numbers of them, and this year is no exception. Colorado Ski Country USA recently announced that the exclusive Colorado Ski Country Gold Pass is available for the 2009-10 ski season. The transferable pass, good for unlimited skiing and riding at member resorts, can be purchased for $2,750. Continue Reading
