YOUR GUIDE TO THE 2021-22 SEASON
Ski Cooper opened for the 2021-22 season on Saturday December 11th. We are pleased to be able to offer a more relaxed atmosphere this season than we have in the last season and a half. With that as our goal, we provide the following:
What you can expect at Cooper**
Ski Cooper now has a permanent single entrance point to the area: the Port-of-Entry. This entry is now equipped with RFID gates for entrance and exit during operating hours. You must have a valid pass to enter the ski area during operating hours. Ski Cooper does offer a “visitor pass” for those not participating in skiing activities (Please inquire at the will-call window). This visitor pass (RFID card) will allow you to pass through our Port-of-Entry gates, so that you have the opportunity to spend some time indoors with those in your party who are participating in our sport, grab a bite to eat or visit our retail shop, but it does not include access to the hill in any manner and to do so would be considered theft of services. Please bear in mind that we respectfully ask that you do not sit at and hold a table for an extended period of time in consideration of others who also wish to sit and enjoy a break and some lunch.
Ski Cooper recommends that guests wear a mask while indoors. Guests are also encouraged to wear masks wherever their personal comfort suggests throughout outdoor locations. Masks will not be required in any location unless mandated by local or state ordinance or developing operational needs.
Ski Cooper is operating at normal levels in the base lodge, restaurants, and other areas of public access. This is subject to change at any time. Plexiglass shields remain in place at most point-of-sale and employee/guest transaction locations. Additional outdoor seating may be available in several locations. Readily available hand sanitizing stations remain in place throughout the buildings.
You are welcome to bring small “sack lunches” into the area which can be eaten indoors or out. Please leave coolers, bins, large bags, suitcases, crock pots, extraneous clothing, boot bags, etc. in your vehicle and do not bring them through the Port of Entry. Our space is limited, and these items take up lots of it. Small backpacks and bags are allowed through the Port as long as they are kept on your person and not left unattended. If you are unable to keep items on your person while skiing or riding, we kindly ask that you leave the item(s) in your vehicle. Lockers are not currently available for use, but we are hoping to have some soon. Please change and boot up at your vehicle! Items left unattended in the base lodge or any public indoor area may be removed and placed outside. Cooper is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged items.
We ask that you please be courteous to your fellow guests and limit your indoor table time to 30 minutes during busier times (weekends, holidays, spring break weeks). Likewise, please do not reserve tables; give your fellow skiers and riders a chance to sit, relax, eat and drink!
Ski and snowboard lessons are available as private lessons, or to cohort groups (family/friends arriving together). Guests from different cohorts will not be grouped together.
Ski and snowboard lessons are available for ages 6 and up.
Ski Cooper does not provide Childcare.
All ski and snowboard lessons must be booked in advance by calling 800-707-6114.
**These policies are subject to change without notice at any time as circumstances dictate, and as local, state, and federal guidelines and restrictions change.
