At Cooper, we’re not like our neighbors. We’re different. And that’s a good thing! Think about it: do you really want to spend your “get-a-way” ski vacation wading through bodies, waiting in lift lines, stuck in the same hustle and bustle that you find in the city, scratching and sliding on hard, overworked man-made snow, and having to part with your life savings to do it? No? We didn’t think so. And that’s where we come in!
