I’ve been skiing Wolf since the early 80s. I have seen it grow from two lifts and one building to were it is today. Pros: 1) having to drive up from Pagosa or South fork keeps the crowds down except holidays. 2) they keep adding...More

Have you considered renting with VRBO or airBnb? There is a cute downtown area but it is very small. The Springs Resort is very nice and you can walk to several shops and restaurants.
