I have 10 days on the mountain this year so far. I have skied from day 1 of 2007/2008 season, through holiday days, cold days, snowy days and sunny days. Over all there is no better place to ski then Wolf Creek. The snow is incredible here, very light and lots of it. I read below that were icy spots. I have skied almost every run on this mountain, and there is no ice.
This mountain is a true skiers mountain. The terrain and runs provide an excellent variety of experiences. If you are a, "take a couple runs then sit in the lodge the rest of the day and talk about the how much you like your Gulfstream V better then your Gulfstream IV", then wolf creek is not for you. There is no village and your lodging is 20 miles away.
There are two cafeteria style restaurants that only take cash (my biggest complaint). Very good over priced food. You are not allowed to leave bags or coolers in either of these buildings. There is also a building called the Base Camp. This is a large room with tables and chairs, shelfs to store bags and coolers, restrooms and a minimal cafeteria. You are allowed to leave bags/coolers here. There are some comments below saying that the restaurants and crowded during the holiday season. Really? First year skiing?
Everyone that works at Wolf Creek is friendly. The only exception I have found is who ever is working the Alberta Lift. Not that they are rude, it just seems that they put the more jaded people on that lift.
If I had one wish for Wolf creek would be faster lifts. All but one are slower type. The only time you ever see a lift line at Wolf Creek is during the Christmas to New Years time period, so I would assume that they don't have a motivation to upgrade to more capacity.
All around Wolf Creek has the best snow/terrain and is very cost effective.
