Wolf Creek Ski Resort is a family owned and operated resort that just celebrated its 75th anniversary.

No matter what you enjoy doing, Wolf Creek Lodge has something you’ll like.
Wolf Creek gets the most snow of any ski resort in Colorado – 36 feet each year. The Wolf Creek ski area is perfect not only for skiing, but snowboarding, snow tubing, and other winter sports as well. In fact, the light, dry snow here is so famous that when the storm clouds gather, residents drop what they’re doing for some quality winter sport time.
Wolf Creek is a family-friendly resort with trails for everyone from beginners to advanced skiers. The kids’ ski school program is one of the best and most popular in Colorado. Wolf Creek’s goal is to show guests “how skiing used to be” and treat them to a laid-back, fun skiing vacation. Their 10 kilometers of cross-country trails are always well-groomed and ready for any winter athlete.
All that skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing usually makes guests hungry, so they are eager to find warm, hearty fare. There is no village inside Wolf Creek’s boundaries, but the Wolf Creek Lodge itself serves up a variety of great foods. Their soups and red chili are perfect for frigid winter evenings, as is their Santa Fe style green chili. The lodge also offers a full-service gourmet salad bar.
Outside Wolf Creek Lodge, several nearby bars and grills do plenty of business during the winter. These include the Pathfinder and Pagosa Bars, as well as the River Sports Bar & Grill and the Bear Creek Saloon. Wolf Creek’s bars are known for their locally brewed beers and variety of mixed drinks. The Pathfinder Bar serves up several types of hot wine.
