Wolf Creek operates on 1,600 acres spread along a high alpine ridge in the Rio Grande National Forest, under a U.S. Forest Service permit and administration. The uniqueness of Wolf Creek lies in the 1,000 acres between Horseshoe Bowl and the Water Fall area, which is called the Alberta Lift area. This wilderness provides everything from challenging double black diamond runs of the Knife Ridge chutes to a variety of intermediate terrain where navigation skills are called into action. Groomed runs are also a part of the scheme complimenting the excitement and challenge of the Alberta Lift area. The traditional trails are the main core of Wolf Creek with 6 lifts servicing 500 acres of terrain all leading into the base area facilities. Wolf Creek Ski Area is one of Colorado's oldest and finest ski resorts that receives an average annual snowfall of 465 natural inches, the most snow in Colorado! Their trademark is friendly employees and abundant light powder. Wolf Creek is a high alpine ski resort, 10,300 ft at the base and 11,900 ft at the summit with 1,600 skiable acres. Wolf Creek offers a better ski experience at a very affordable price.
