Wolf Creek came out of left field this fall, opening its gates to skiers and riders on October 13 and claiming a win in this year's race to open. Heavy pre-season snowfall allowed the southern Colorado resort to open with powder conditions and a 22-inch base. Elated guests accessed the first turns of the 2018/2019 season via three lifts and multiple trails. Wolf Creek is currently operating on a weekends-only schedule.
