Wolf Creek Ski Area

Wolf Creek Resort is a high alpine ski resort, 10,300 feet at the base and 11,900 feet at the summit. Sunscreen and sunglasses are a necessity in the high altitude sun. The weather conditions can change rapidly so be prepared with extra clothing and goggles. Clothing need not be elaborate, or even designed for skiing, but a wool hat, warm gloves or mittens, and underclothing are musts. Recognize your own limitations. If you get tired or cold, stop for a while.

Wolf Creek's 9 lifts service incredibly beautiful terrain, over 1,600 acres. The Magic Carpet is a moving conveyor lift for the Wolf Pup Program. The Nova Lift services beginner terrain for children and new skiers. The Raven Chairlift, a high speed quad, services primarily beginner and intermediate terrain. The Treasure Stoke Quad and Bonanza Triple Chairlift services intermediate and expert slopes. The D. Boyce lift is a high speed poma that services intermediate and expert terrain. The Alberta Chairlift replaces the snowcat shuttle that served the Water Fall Area. This unique area is beautiful and adventuresome; full of incredible glades and changing terrain. Predominantly tree skiing and boarding, these 1,000 acres have a few groomed trails for intermediates' interests and enjoyment.
