We LOVE Ski Cooper. We've been there at least a half dozen times over the past two years. It's small, and experienced riders will get a little bored after two or three days in a row, but as a family friendly place that serves as an awesome complement to the larger local mtns, Cooper is fantastic. Powder stays intact at Cooper longer than any place I've ever seen. Our then-4 year old learned to ski there and my wife made her boarding breakthrough there. The terrain is steep enough to make learning useful, long enough to be entertaining, and it includes enough challenging runs to keep experienced riders occupied for a few days.
