Lack of Snow Pushes Back Ski Cooper Opening Day
Ski Cooper outside Leadville, has pushed back its opening day to Friday, November 30 due to a lack of snow. According to the ski hill’s Facebook page “if we don’t open Thursday, we will shoot for next Friday, Nov. 30, pending snowfall.”
While they have seen some snowfall, it’s not enough to fire up the lifts. As one of the older ski areas in the state, Ski Cooper doesn’t make any snow, so it relies purely on Mother Nature. The good news is that it has some of the best skiable terrain and conditions when it does have snow. The bad news is that they have to wait on Mother Nature to show up before opening the lifts and putting Leadville locals to work.
Once Ski Cooper does open, skiers and snow boarders can take advantage of the new XP 4 Day Pass which allows 4 days on one pass without blackout dates or consecutive day requirements for only $99.00! That’s less than $25 PER DAY! (Non-Transferable). Use it any 4 days you want during the 2012-2013 ski season. The XP 4 Day Pass is ONLY good at Ski Cooper and is ONLY available for purchase online and is $99 only through Opening Day while they last.
Last year, lack of snow pushed Ski Cooper’s opening day well into December, finally kicking off the season on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24. The local weather forecast is predicting snow for early next week. Keep your fingers crossed and those knees well conditioned until then.
