Cooper’s Home Stretch: Cottontails and $5 April Fools!
As the 2015-16 ski season starts to wind down, Ski Cooper winds up the deals and fun for its final weeks of the season. Leadville’s ski mountain will close on Sunday, April 10, but until then, take note of these happenings.
This Saturday, March 26 bring the kids out to the mountain for Cooper’s Annual Easter Egg Hunt. The event will be held beside The Lodge at Ski Cooper starting at 9 a.m. sharp!
According to egg hunt organizers, this is a free, fun, and very fast event so don’t be late. Remember to bring a bag or basket and allow enough time to park and walk to the venue.
Cooper will hide thousands of eggs, so bring your own basket and get ready to scoop up the goodies. There will be three age divisions and find the “Cooper Egg” and win a FREE season pass for next year. The event is FREE and open to the public, whether you’re skiing or not!
There goes Peter Cottontail hopping down the Ski Cooper Ski Trail! Better catch him before it’s all gone!
Other Deals at Ski Cooper as Season Winds Down
Cooper is offering $25 lift tickets (adult, child, senior) during their last week. Spring conditions are nearly perfect with sunny days in between several inches of fresh snow, which is exactly what the forecast calls for.
Enjoy $25 lift tickets all week for their closing week at Cooper, from Monday, April 4 through Sunday, April 10! And if you can get in some turns on April Fools Day then take advantage of Cooper’s $5 lift tickets all day! No kidding! All they ask in return is to please bring a donation for the local food bank in exchange for your $5 ticket.
Cooper is excited to make their $5 Friday into a community effort, so in addition to the food bank aspect, they will also be donating a portion of each lift ticket sale to their local scholarship fund to assist worthy local high school students in pursuing further education. Please come out to Cooper on April 1 and support these causes while enjoying a wonderful day on the slopes!
And don’t forget about Cooper’s live music scene on April 7, 9 and 10! Get in those last spring turns without going broke, and enjoy the spring blue skies and sunshine on Katie’s Deck with a micro-brew and a bite. It’s Springtime on the slopes at Cooper!
