We went to Wolf Creek for the first time. It was local appreciation day, and even though we aren't local we got the $41 ticket price! We rented boots/skis/poles from them ($16), which are pretty beat up from a season's worth of use. They do not rent helmets. My son had issues with bindings that released for no apparent reason...

We decided to take our 12 and 15 year old to wolf creek to learn how to snow board. The prices was very good in comparison to other larger ski areas and the staff and instructors were super nice and very helpful. Both kids got the hang of it after lunch and are excited to go again. We did try... More

What a disappointment. A ski resort with no terrain park. Surprisingly short runs and not much of an elevation drop. The lack of vertical drop creates a lot of long, flat areas which are problematic for boarders. They do have a lot of tree runs, which again favors skiers rather than boarders. I've been to a lot of ski resorts,... More

Wolf Creek Pass is far from the madding crowds experienced at the front range ski areas such as Winter Park, Copper Mountain, or Breckenridge. It lacks the amenities and night life, but if skiing is what you are looking for, this is as good as most.

I have been visiting Pagosa Springs and Wolf Creek mountain for the past 20+ years. This is one of the only small mountains that is yet to be over commercialized ! and I hope that it stays that way. It is not easy to get to .. the nearest small airport (Durango) is 80+ miles from the slopes so it... More

Snow was great. Staff was friendly, helpful. Showed us the ropes because it was our first time, everything from where to store the skis to how to attach the lift pass to our clothing. George carried my skies up the hill. Staff at the ravens nest upstairs carried my pizza downstairs for me bc I couldn't walk in ski boots... More

We're 4.5 hours away, so we stayed 2 nights in Pagosa Springs. This marked my 3rd time skiing here. The husband had never been, so we decided to toss it up from our typical Vail Resorts even though we’re passholders due to WC’s extremely affordable lift ticket prices ($63 at the time of this review). I knew there'd be some... More

It's hard to beat Wolf Creek. Excellent snow all season-no snow making because they dont need it! The very reasonable lift tix help those who are not rich bring the family for some fun in the snow. good facilities-not fancy but well maintained- and lots of great runs for all skill levels. Very good ski school-especially for kids. Very local/homey... More

This was our family's first trip to Wolf Creek for skiing, and we loved it. We have been to nearby Pagosa Springs before, and we really like the area - gorgeous in summer and winter. The Wolf Creek Ski Resort is a short drive from Pagosa - we rented a house outside of town (on the ski resort side), and... More

We visited Wolf Creek over Spring Break 2015. The first warning should have been that you could not register for any classes or buy lift tickets online. What this means for consumers is mass confusion, long lines and classes that are overbooked. According to management, they have been trying to get the resort to rectify this for years but it's...
