Overview

Located in the San Juan and Rio Grande national forest between Pagosa Springs and South Fork, Colorado, Wolf Creek Ski Area is known to have “The Most Snow in Colorado”. Spanning across a high alpine ridge, Wolf Creek receives an annual snowfall of 430 inches of natural powder and is known for its incredible hike-to terrain.
