Here’s what some of OnTheSnow’s users have to say about Wolf Creek: 

“I am an older skier and so appreciated the patience and encouragement provided by the instructors. They help build confidence and expert advice. I cannot say enough good things about the staff The snow was also great of course and the views fantastic.” – Mary 

“Maybe I hit Wolf Creek on a good day…the quality of the snow was great. They have really nice Intermediate and Advanced terrain though most of the runs are rather short with long Green and Blue runouts. Ticket and food prices are very reasonable, and the place has a very friendly atmosphere.” – Rick 

“So much ungroomed goodness. Yet, enough groomers to satisfy. Been skiing here for about 30yrs. I’ve been to the big, ritzy mountains, but, my favorite place to ski is Wolf Creek.” – Graden
