Ski Cooper, or "the Coop" as it's affectionately known, is a small, friendly ski area about 20 miles south of Vail. While there are over 25 developed runs in the ski area proper, the bulk of the land is accessible only on Snowcat tours. With stunning views of Colorado's highest peaks, skiing the pristine, isolated slopes of the Chicago Ridge is a great experience.
