With an additional 8-12" that fell on top of our base in the last week and more snow on the way, conditions are getting better every day.

Ski Cooper announced today that they will open with plenty of snow this Friday, December 21, 2012 for the 2012-2013 ski season. 100% of its lifts and ski runs will open at 9:00 a.m. and close at 4:00 p.m. “With an additional 8-12” added to our base in the last week, and snow expected throughout the week, conditions are getting better by the day,” said Ski Cooper spokesperson Bob Casey.

Ski Cooper’s well-known ski school will be open for lessons Friday through the end of the season for kids, adults, never-evers, snowboarders and skiers. Telemark lessons are available as well. Ski Clinics, such as the popular Back Country Basics Avalanche Class, will be announced at a later date.
