It’s not Aspen, Vail, Bever creek, or Breckinridge, that’s what’s great about it!!!!!!

Let me begin by saying I know we went over Spring Break and we expected crowds/lines. Not only did we get that, but we also got an extremely poorly managed ski resort to boot. After talking with many others the majority ruled that "this is...More

Wolf Creek offers great skiing every time. Last season, I was glad to see this place 100% open, whereas other places such as Lake Tahoe, CA and Santa Fe, NM only had a few runs open. Like anywhere else, it gets crowded around holidays and...More

Great location for families that have a wide range of skiing abilities - great slopes for beginners to advanced. Our family likes that you can ski from the top of the mountain down on any type of slope.

Wolf Creek is wonderfully crazy and we absolutely love our season's passes!! They average 400+ inches of snow per year (or some stupidly high number) and the shines 357 days a year. That is a formula for great skiing and any winter sport you may...More

Great place for remote camping at a lake/reservoir just to the left (if you're facing the resort from the street) of this resort. drive through parking lot and down dirt road. It's a hidden spot that not many people know about!

My husband and I spent a week here during spring break. My 4 year old son became an avid (for a 4yr old) skier with the help of the wonderful Wolf Pup ski instructors. Everyone had a blast and we will definitely be back!

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.
