Leadville Ski Season During COVID-19

Updated: Jan 8, 2021

We are all excited to get our groove on the ski slopes now that winter is right around the corner! However, amid COVID-19, many ski resorts in Colorado must restrict their services to try and stop the spread of the virus. What does that mean for you as you try and plan your ski trip to the Leadville area?

Here is a guide to what these restrictions are for the two most popular ski areas around Leadville.

Ski Cooper

  • Ski lift tickets will only be able to be purchased online. Tickets will go on sale ten days before your actual ski day. Tickets can be purchased at

  • Ski Cooper will offer Ski School lessons on an individual, family, or cohort basis only – there will be no mixed groups. Lessons must be scheduled and paid for in advance, by phone only.

  • The Chicago Ridge Snowcat Skiing operations will not be in operation this season.

  • There will be no children’s programs or daycare services available.

  • Guests will be required to wear face coverings in all indoor areas, lift lines, base lodge decks, the mountaintop yurt deck, and ski and ride school meeting areas.

  • To make you safe, Ski Cooper has spread out their food and beverage options and will feature several new food areas, including an outdoor grill, a pizzeria at Katie O’Rourke’s, and takeout options at the Base Camp Cafeteria.

Copper Mountain

  • Copper Mountain is operating on a reservation-based parking system. There is a lot of information regarding how this works on the FAQs section of their website.

  • As with Ski Cooper, face coverings will be required in indoor areas and elsewhere as indicated by signage.

  • Guests will need to ride chairlifts and gondolas with their traveling party. High capacity chairlifts and closed cabin carriers may be loaded in a way that allows for physical distancing.

These restrictions are only meant to keep us safe. They don't mean that we can't have a ton of fun on the slopes. Enjoy!
