Wolf Creek Ski Area

Something most people don’t know: Wolf Creek Ski Area has the most natural snow in all of Colorado. Skiing is affordable, and the terrain varies from gentle beginner slopes to the steep and deep. Spend a day at Wolf Creek – it is only 45 minutes from Creede and the drive is gorgeous. Onsite dining facilities offer breakfast and lunch with burgers, pizza, salads, soups; beer, wine & spirits. We recommend the the Hawaiian Ono Burger while you dine at the lodge. A perfect winter day!

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.
