Overview

Wolf Creek is situated in a beautiful southern Colorado bowl drenched with natural snow in the San Juan Rio Grande National Forest. Wolf Creek offers seven lifts serving 1,600 acres of skiing and snowboarding - at great rates. Wolf Creek doesn't get the big crowds, but it does get the big snow - over 450 inches annually. In fact, The U.S. Olympic Team trains here because the season is long and snowy at this high elevation South West Colorado ski resort. Wolf Creek has trademarked "the most snow in Colorado" and backs up their claim scientifically by typically receiving 450-470’ of snow in this South West Snowbelt. Interestingly, this part of Colorado has a similar latitude to Virginia but you are skiing above 10,000'.

Powder, powder, powder, that's what it is all about here. No parks, and not even completely groomed, they know what their product is. Powder and trees. Don't waste your time near the chairs. Go to knife ridge and find the cat. Hike up about 200 yards and drop left. That's where... More

Wolf Creek is a small gem in Southern Colorado, that receives an ungodly amount of snow. If you are looking for nonexistent lift lines, waist-deep powder, and friendly people, then Wolf Creek is the place to go.... More
