Full review

I have no idea what the guy who says it never snows at WC is talking about. I think he was thinking about Ski Apache or something. We have been to Wolf Creek 3 or 4 times and it has always been great. Sure it gets crowded on holiday weeks and the lines are longer for tickets, rentals, food, etc. but what resort isn't? The staff has always been friendly and helpful and for the size of the mountain you get a lot of bang for the buck. Most snow in CO and almost always has better early season snow than the others. Also, Pagosa is a great little town with good dining and drinking spots and of course the hot springs. Don't go without experiencing the hot springs.

I read a lot of these negative reviews and wonder if these people really
even like to ski. Some have valid complaints about poor service, bad
attitudes by the staff, crappy facilities, etc. Most just seem to be looking for
something to complain about. Bottom line: Skiing is not for whiners,
pessimists or wimps. It's always going to be cold. There will usually be lines
and traffic and you'll have to walk a little ways to and from your car. The food
will always be more expensive than at home. Your boots will never feel like
your house slippers. Snow conditions will not always be perfect and the sun
won't always be shining, but if you truly love to ski, then none of this will
matter to you. All that will matter is standing on top of a mountain and trying
to decide which way and how fast you're going to go down it.
