Welcome to the Wolf Creek Ski Area Website!

Wolf Creek Ski Area is now open for 7-day a week operations for the 2020-2021 ski season!

Wolf Creek Ski Area’s Winter COVID-19 Operating Plan has been approved by the Silver Thread Health District.  Please read and make yourself familiar with these guidelines.

Wolf Creek has an all-natural snow depth of 50″ at the midway.  The year-to-date snowfall total is 99″!  Conditions are Powder/Packed Powder with early season obstacles and extensive grooming throughout the mountain.  Alberta, Charity Jane, Treasure Stoke, Bonanza, Elma, Raven, Nova and Lynx Lifts are operating from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Skiers and boarders have access to approximately 98% of the mountain.

Pre-purchasing lift tickets is preferred and can be done by visiting the eStore; purchases must be made prior to 8:00 PM.  Lift tickets can also be purchased the morning of at the Ticket Office with a credit card only; cash will not be accepted. To expedite the ticketing process, a “Will Call” location next to the Ticket Office has been set up. Please go directly to the outside pick-up location and have your driver’s license available; the tickets have been filed under the purchasers last name.

Lift tickets are now at regular rates; however tomorrow, November 30th through Friday, December 4th, lift tickets will be at Local Appreciation Rates.  Regular rates apply every day of the season except during Peak Rate Dates.  Regular Lift ticket rates will be $80 for adults, $50 for seniors and $41 for children.    Please visit the eStore at to pre-purchase and view Peak Rate Dates and Prices.

Skiers and boarders should bring their own water, snacks and lunch.


Wolf Creek Ski School is excited to announce Ski and Snowboard lessons for all ages and levels for the 2020/21 season. Starting November 19th, we will be offering reserved private lessons only. The lesson must be reserved by 3:00 pm the day before the lesson to assure we can accommodate the lesson.   Private lessons are limited, so early reservations are recommended. Wolf Creek is committed to start operations with a conservative approach in accordance to Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Guidance (CDPHE) during these difficult times. Please read the CDPHE guidance for Ski School so you know what is expected.

-Half and Full Day Private lessons are a good option for small family groups and folks traveling together.  A Half Day private is a three-hour lesson and a Full Day private is a five hour lesson, both can accommodate up to 5 people.

-If you have limited time here at Wolf Creek, consider learning skiing instead of snowboarding. Skiing is generally easier to learn especially if you only have one day here at the mountain.

– PLEASE REMEMBER – Skiers and boarders should bring their own water, snacks and lunch.
