“WE <3 SKI COOPER! Long before the days of our mega-resorts, the Ski Cooper reigned supreme. Nowadays, its the local gem for a chill, relaxed ski/board session with your close family & friends! The perfect place to learn, with many of the trails being Beginner or Intermediate. Heads up, we just opened the Tennessee Creek Pass portion, a challenging back mountain full of single and double diamonds, not for the faint of heart! Low cost, Low Key, Low Maintenance and Lo-cal (local)? We Leadvillians <3 that.”

“Vail Village/ This place is always packed so if you wan't a table send someone over early to get your name on the list. Not fancy, and it isn't about the warm cozy staff! It's about the best $5.00 by the slice pizza that you've ever had, for a real treat try a slice of Snow pig...my mouth is watering as I write this!!”
