Skiing New Terrain and Staging Races
Ski New Terrain, Pass Sale Thru July
Ski Cooper’s Wayback Pod Improvement Project has been underway most of July with the air operations wrapping up this week as the trees were cleared and flown out at considerable expense in order to minimize environmental impact to the project area.
“Great care has been taken to clear the new lift line and fly out trees by helicopter to reduce our footprint on the new terrain,” explained Ski Cooper’s Director of Marketing and Sales Dana Tyler Johnson. “The new double black diamond terrain is taking shape as a number of new trails will be opening up for the upcoming season on the east-facing slopes of Cooper.”
So if you are looking to take advantage of all that great new terrain and get in on the discounted season price, you need to do it before August 1.

New Lift Line Cleared for the 2019-20 Season
Stage Race Sets Course This Weekend
This weekend, July 26-28, Life Time Fitness is hosting its Leadville Stage Race. This three-day event marks its fourth year in 2019 and follows the exact same course as the legendary The Leadville Trail 100 MTB (LT100 MTB), which will be held next month on August 10.
Race organizers describe the event as covering the same high-altitude terrain as the LT100 MTB, but splitting the distance over three consecutive stages. Day One will see riders roll 42 miles from town over St. Kevin’s and Sugarloaf passes to Lost Canyon, just past Twin Lakes. Day Two is only 16 miles long but makes the out-and-back trip to the 12,424-foot Columbine Mine. And Day Three returns racers back to Leadville the way they came.
The challenge also offers an option for cyclists looking to qualify for the LT100 MTB. More information for the Leadville Stage Race can be found here: LINK.
