Wolf Creek Ski Area, Colorado

Welcome to Powder Country

Come experience the Most Snow in Colorado! Wolf Creek stands out from other ski areas in Colorado not only for being family owned and operated, but also for a formulated lift and trail system making terrain for everyone easily accessible.

• 18 miles from South Fork
• 1600 acres of terrain
• 8 chair lifts, 2 conveyer lifts, 1 poma lift
• 133 skiable trails
• 1604 ft vertical drop
• 430+ inches snowfall

While the area is largely unknown outside of Colorado, it is beloved by powder hounds. Wolf Creek boasts epic snowfall, generally 430+ inches of the fluffy white stuff each year, more than any other ski resort in Colorado. Snow is so prolific here that the resort typically opens in October, giving it one of the longest seasons in the country.

You won’t hear the din of snow-making machines fabricating a beaten path between rocks and dirt, but instead, listen for the distant whoops of avalanche-control bombs…

This is powder country.

Downhill skiers and snowboarders alike will love the family- oriented atmosphere and limited lift lines. With 1600 acres of terrain, beginners to advanced skiers and boarders will feel right at home. Eleven lifts provide access to 133 trails, with 20% for beginners, 35% intermediate, 25% advanced, and 20% for experts.

Wolf Creek also offers individual and group ski lessons for all ability levels starting at the age of 5. The Wolf Pup Center is for smaller children, where access to the “magic carpet,” Nova lift, and private kid-friendly lodge create the perfect haven for youngsters to learn a new sport. The Hot Shots program is specifically designed for adventurous children aged 9-12 who are looking to explore the mountain. Adult lessons and clinics are great for learning the sport or refining your technique.

There are several restaurants and bars at the mountain base for après ski, including Alberta Grill and the Pathfinder Bar, as well as equipment and apparel shops. Check out the three ski rental shops in South Fork for deals and equipment rental discounts.
