Skiing in Leadville and Twin Lakes
Lake County's abundant, all-natural snow and sunshine make it a skier's paradise. Ski Cooper is one of the state's friendliest and most affordable ski resorts, and Chicago Ridge offers a premier Snow Cat back-country ski experience. For Nordic and cross-country skiers and snowshoers, the Leadville and Twin Lakes area trails range from fee-based professionally operated and maintained tracks to no-cost raw trails that stretch into the wilderness. More than 50 miles of free, groomed trails and typically the longest season in Colorado.
