Competitors in this year’s Cooper Cup enjoyed sunshine, incredible conditions, and a carnival-like atmosphere (costumes are encouraged for competitors and spectators alike) at Cooper Spur Ski Area last weekend. The giant slalom course ran from the top of the Raceway run down through the bottom of The Face for more than 350 vertical feet. Racers young and old charged the course, duking it out for the top spot in four different age groups. Following the official race was a fun parents’ race that served as a fundraiser for Cooper Spur Alpine Team (formerly Cooper Spur Race Team).

The Cooper Cup is the culminating event of the four-day Cooper Camp — an annual skill-building event for skiers of all abilities that runs during winter break and is open to the community. This year, CSAT again was fortunate that there was enough snow to run Cooper Camp primarily at Cooper Spur Ski Area. Even with a day where the Homestead lift was down, campers made the most of their time at Cooper Spur and showed their grit by hiking the slopes all day long.
