I am continuing my obsession with Ski Cooper. I got to ski there again a couple of weeks ago. I spent three days on the slopes and skied just about every run available. As I have written about before, Ski Cooper is one of the oldest (if not the oldest) still operating Ski Area in Colorado. The 10th Mountain Division Ski Troopers trained there during World War II. I fell in love with this small Mountain when I was a young boy. Despite having lived in Texas all my life….I feel I grew up at this friendly, Ski Area. I was glad to be there one last time this season.

The first day was overcast and fairly cold for spring skiing. There was a lot of ice on the slopes making a few runs kind of questionable. That night the skies opened up and gave us 5 inches of fresh powder. The new snow made the second two days absolutely perfect. As the week rounded to a close I skied hard trying to soak in as much of the mountain as I could. Counting two previous trips (Cooper and Durango)…I was lucky enough to ski 8 days this season…which is pretty good for a Texas boy. It will be 2012 before I am able to Go again. Until then this video will have to do.
I filmed as much as batteries and memory cards would allow…I won’t subject you to it all…but I did put together this short “Virtual Tour” of 8 different runs at Ski Cooper. Included are: Trail’s End, Piney, Burnout, Peak-a-boo, Nightmare, Powerline, Treasure Trove, and Slade’s Run.
