Reviews for Wolf Creek Ski Area
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
I love the woof creek. The ski patrol actually opens terrain that most mountains wouldn’t and that gives you the options to do some huge cliffs and steep chutes. The steep sections are short and the flats can kill but you can make the best of them. I just want them to stay off the ikon/epic pass so we keep the lines short. Maybe they can join mtn. Collective or GEMS pass. I’d love to see another lift maybe on the backside of treasure or near horseshoe. Love this locally owned mountain I appreciate all they have done to make extend the terrain in recent years. ... Full Review
Super nice staff. Highly recommend this place to ski for entire family. Have been coming here for 20+ years... Full Review
This is a fantastic mountain for all types of terrain. Lift lines are short except during peak weeks. The ski school / wolf pup program has historically been well run. Would like to see improved lodge facilities as well as a few groomed expert runs for those of us whose knees can no longer handle the bumps or deep powder.... Full Review
I've skied everywhere at Wolf Creek. Best place I have ever skied. ... Full Review
Love the physical mountain snow but man this mountain has taken the cover thing way to far. I was on the chair lift with my son in the open air and a worker was riding it down, when they passed us on the way down I was Told to put my mask up. Good hell. This was one of many ridiculous mandates that obviously have nothing to do with safety. Probably the most unsafe thing happenning is there is no place to warm kids or get people out of the weather. ... Full Review
I love Wolf. Snow never disappoints. It has become more crowed because the secret is out. This is a skiers mountain. You don’t go to wolf to hang out in the multi million dollar lodge. If you willing to hike a few you will will have the time of your life and catch some fresh laps. Do yourself a favor park in the 4x4 lot catch Raven lift at 8am traverse to Alberta lift and you have no lift lines. Ski down to your vehicle for lunch “COVID” or at the end of the day. Make sure you hike up to Alberta it’s worth the lack of oxygen. ... Full Review
The snow is great.
Way more crowded than usual.
Cover restrictions are over the top. No place to warm up. Very long line for using the rest room.... Full Review
great consistent snow. The expert runs are rather short. Nothing to do in Pagosa springs except go to the springs and have a pizza. No music or dancing, small humdrum bars. Prices are reasonable but more expensive than you would expect for such a small town. Lift prices are more expensive than Santa Fe, which I think is a better ski area when they have snow ...

I appreciate the staffs efforts, especially during busy holiday times, to keep everyone following covid 19 protocol so well so we could stay open this season. Everyone was allowed to take the lift alone if they were uncomfortable sitting near someone else. I'm sure asking "can you please pull your mask all the way up" a million times a day to all sorts of people, and still being nice about it can't be easy. Thanks everyone for working a high risk job so we can enjoy ourselves... Full Review
The snow is great and the staff are wonderful -- but really disappointed in how the mountain's management completely neglected COVID safety precautions, endangering staff and patrons. Parking lot shuttles at the end of the day were filled above the state's COVID-legal capacity to 100% (it is posted on the shuttle door that buses can only be filled to 50% capacity and masks are required). Also, despite signs that stated, "Mask over the nose, or we close," only about 2/3 of skiers had any face coverings over mouth & nose in lift lines or common areas. Quite shocked to see people unmasked in all community areas including lift lines and bathrooms. Love this mountain, but we won't be back until we're vaccinated.... Full Review
