Although we are hoping for a few months of off-season winter sports, Wolf Creek Ski area has scheduled a tentative closing day of April 7, 2019.
Often referred to as Gaper Day, the last day of ski/snowboard season tends to be an afternoon of friends, costumes, tailgating, and more! Gaper Day is essentially the April Fool’s of the mountain– an event you’ll be sorry if you miss! So get your costumes ready and join us for the fun at Wolf Creek!
WolfCreekSki.com has reported 305 inches of snow have fallen on the mountain this season! Currently, the midway base sits at 118 inches of snow. Not only does Wolf Creek Mountain have more snow than any other Colorado resort this year, it is also one of the most reasonably priced resorts in the state. If you haven’t taken advantage of the fresh powder, you’re missing out!
After a 20 inch storm this week, Wolf Creek Ski Area, Colorado has announced they will be opening for weekends starting October 13th! Wolf Creek currently has a base at the midway of 14 inches. The ski area will open three lifts from 9:00am to 4:00 pm this Saturday and Sunday. Access to the lifts will be at the Local Appreciation rate of $50 for adults, $33 for seniors, and $27 for children.

This is a dear friend of mine named Ralph and I at the top of Pagosa Peak. I like to think of him as my own personal Sherpa. If you’re new to the area, get out there and explore!!! Nothing is more exhilarating than conquering a mountain, especially for an ex-city boy~ (even if it is only 12,600′ elevation)
