Wolf Creek

  After a snow-filled December, Wolf Creek Ski Area has surpassed the 200-inch mark, making it the ski resort with the Most Snow in the Nation! With sun-filled days and not another storm coming in for at least a week, this is the best time to discover why boarders and skiers alike have coveted the deep powder and incredible natural snow in Southwest Colorado. Says Barnie.

Wolf Creek Ranch is half the distance from the slopes, and it the best place to stay!
