Lets Check in with Wolf Creek in Southern Colorado

 

wcsa_nov16-0045Wolf Creek Ski Area is known for deep powder and its great mix of beautiful pristine terrain. Every ability level and age group enjoys the quality and abundance of snow as well as the friendly atmosphere that is eminently present.

Located in Southern Colorado, Wolf Creek has a reputation for early-season skiing, excellent homemade food and pastries available in the lodge, and is notorious for receiving the most snow in the state. So far this season, Wolf Creek has received 339 inches of snow, and given that this is an El Nino year, that number could climb much higher before the season ends.

When you visit Wolf Creek be sure to check to see if the Horseshoe Bowl SnowCat Shuttle is running. They run the Snow Cat after large storm cycles because otherwise its a 45-minute hike from the top of the Alberta Lift over the Knife Ridge, past the saddle and up into the bowl. The SnowCat will pick up skiers and boarders at the Dow Chutes and take them to the Horseshoe Bowl. Check the Wolf Creek homepage and snow report to see if the cat is operating that day. By the way, the cat is free with purchase of a lift ticket. kniferidge
