OUR EPIC SNOW SEASON IS ALMOST OVER

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!

300 INCHES AND COUNTING!

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!
