Full review

Looking for a place where 4:00 faceshots straight down the lift line exist? That is Wolf Creek. Its not fancy, its not pretentious, but Wolf gets so much more snow than the rest of Colorado it feels like a different sport.

The downside is that the mountain is benchy. Even on advanced/expert areas of the mountain, there are low pitch sections in between very, very steep lines. You do not get 1500 vericatl feet of 35* here, but you get plenty of 400-500 vert of 45-50* pitch followed by flatter stuff followed by steeper stuff.

There is a ton of technical skiing here- lots of chutes and cliffs hiding in the trees.
