Could even get in to see this. The chair lifts weren't running at all because of the storms up there, so we went up there for no reason.

Had a great time at Wolf Creek over Christmas break. The lift lines never seemed long, plenty of food to choose from and friendly staff. We opted to stay in Pagosa Springs and drive to the mountain each day. The drive is not bad at all and the roads were clear. If you have time, do the hike to the... More

At an average of 144" of snow a year, this weekend was epic !!! Snowed all day and night.. Roads were continually being cleared... Slow but steady.... worth the fresh powder runs each time we went down... New tracks each time... Smooth a silk... Steep but fun..

Wolf Creek Ski area is one of my favorites. It is not a "resort" because there is no place to stay on the mountain. You have to stay in either Pagosa Springs or South Fork and drive up the mountain each day. The roads are well maintained in the winter so the drive up is usually not an issue. Some... More

We just love Wolf Creek, and come up from Albuquerque 2 or 3 times a season to ski there. We can count on early season snow and great conditions to get right into the season as soon as possible. Advice — get there early for parking and easier access or you'll have a long walk with your gear to the... More

Lots & lots of snow! Staff was amazing. The roads were snow packed and the drive to Wolf Creek was slow and longer than expected. We stayed on the beginners slop due to the new snow boarders. The trainers were unexpected helpful. The wolf pups staff spent extra time with my 3 years on the slop and took him down... More

Amazing location with amazing terrain. I've had season passes to over 12 resorts in Tahoe and Southern Colorado... Been snowboarding for nearly 20 years and Wolf Creek tops the list. The snow is desert-light.... Utah thinks they have champagne? Lol. Wolf Creek is the bubbly-bubbly! Pow stashes? Yep... 3 days after a snow and you can find solid pow-lines, if... More

Took the kids to ski for the first time- didn't know what to expect, but it was a total blast! There were minimum instructions if you are a beginner, but you ask around and get the info. Good thing is people were helpful. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, cheaper than other places in Colorado, closer to Dallas (to drive during the... More

This area is bigger than Monarch, though still considered a day area. In the past few years, they haven't gotten their normal complement of snow, but you cannot beat the price. Vail lessons= $140, Wolf Creek = $35. We had an instructor (my wife still call hims a sweetie) 82 years old, skied rings around us, and I've been skiing... More
