Wolf Creek ~Fresh Powder~Slope time

Welcome to Pagosa Springs, CO ! One of our main activities when the snow falls is skiing, snow boarding, and sledding or maybe just building the cutest snowman ever. Wolf Creek is one of the best places to play in the snow.  Wolf Creek was able to open on October 13, 2019 this was the second earliest in Wolf Creek history!

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!

This Weekend’s Blood Moon

We’re loving these pictures of Sunday’s Super Blood Wolf Moon! This was the first full moon of 2019 and the first of two lunar eclipses we will see this year. However, we won’t see another total lunar eclipse until May 2021. Who else watched it?
