Season passes are at a cheaper rate right now at Ski Cooper, through Sept. 28. An adult pass (ages 15-69) is $185, a child pass (ages 6-14) is $80, and a seniors pass (70 & over) is $100. Prices will go up after the 28th, so order soon. Hopping on a lift will be easier this season thanks to a new electronic ticket system Ski Cooper is installing. Ski Cooper will be open Thanksgiving weekend, and for three-day weekends after that, until Dec. 14, when the mountain opens daily for the season.
