I have been here more than a few times but it has been about 10 years. I have never been here without a good dumping of fresh powder. In fact my best powder days have been on this mt with the great glades and steeps near Alberta lift and in the Waterfall. Kids are more beginner and had a great... More

Love this place. Lift lines move quickly. Food isn't outrageously expensive. Good amount of tracks for the size of the place. Plenty of diversity in levels of difficulty. Employees are mostly ski bums themselves, so not always the most professional, but usually friendly nonetheless.

Lots of snow and Texans I guess cause its close to drive. Nice variety of terrain and lots of trees. Little crowded at the lifts on spring break on the easier runs but plenty of space once you get going. No Cell phone service or free Wifi...

Great snow, wonderful and helpful staff and instructors and fantastic hamburgers in the grill for those of us who did not ski.. Not at all crowded during spring break, our kids got to ski as much as they wanted. Almost no waiting in the lift lines.

New to skiing, I was hooked! I told my husband I wanted to go again. So we decided on Wolf Creek - it did not disappoint. I signed up for another lesson and had a great instructor. If you are new to skiing, I cannot stress enough how beneficial it is to take lessons, The beginner boots are soooo comfortable... More

Totally blown away! Had never heard of Wolf Creek until recommended by friends. We had a group of 15 from all over N. America and everyone had a good time. From absolute beginners who took 3 days of lessons to experienced shredders who hiked to the awesomely accessible bowls, all of our expectations were exceeded. The 7" of powder on... More

Just visited Wolf Creek last week and it was actually my first non-East Coast snowboarding experience. The first day there was a good amount of powder and the groomed trails were really nice. Didn't notice any ice and weaving through the trees was really fun. It snowed that night and coming back there was TONS of powder. I wasn't used... More

The best snow in Colorado most years, but you better enjoy moguls because the grooming of the trails is almost nonexistent.

Every time we have been there, the snow is incredible. With their high speed lifts, it's only a 5 minute lift ride to get to the top of the mountain. A day of skiing at Wolf Creek is certainly worth the 70 dollar lift ticket. Highly recommend.
