Ski Cooper becomes just the latest Colorado Ski Country USA resort to open, with a 30-inch base and 100% of its 400 acres open for skiers and snowboarders to enjoy this Saturday and Sunday. Ski Cooper will open for the season next Saturday, December 14.

For 2013-14, Ski Cooper has a great pass product: The XP Pass looks just like a season pass, and entitles the holder to four days on the slopes, with no restrictions and no blackouts. The four days can be used anytime during the operating season, and do not need to be used consecutively.  At $99, pass holders will pay just $24.75 per day.

Where do you ski in Colorado? If you’re like many of us, you’ve got a home resort that you return to year after year, week after week and day after day. You love your resort.
