Wolf is the place if you like tree skiing and powder. Not only are there vast amounts of powder stashed back in the trees always, but it snows here so often you have something like a 50/50 chance of landing here on a powder day when every single run is coated with 4" or more of white gold. The trees tend to be far apart, so you can ski down through them almost anywhere you want, designated tree runs, non-designated, and even in-between runs on the near side of the mountain that has a lot of cleared runs. There is a lot of variety, so if cruising open groomed greens and blues is your thing, you will find plenty of that to sink your teeth into also. There are also extremely steep double-black chutes and bowls and tree runs too if challenging your limits sounds like fun. Something for everyone, but especially tree addicts and powder hounds. Try Raven's Nest for lunch or The Continental for espresso up on the continental divide for a high flying rest stop at the top of the mountain.
