Wolf Creek Ski Area Opens for the Season

The season of fall was short lived in Colorado, thanks to a cold and snowy stretch of weather that washed over the state this week. The storm dumped 20 inches on the Wolf Basin Ski Area, prompting the mountain to officially open for the season on Saturday, October 13. This weekend’s opening marks only the second earliest opening for the ski area, and the first mountain in the country to open for business this season.

Wolf Creek will be open to the public on weekends only until the snow gods bless the state with heartier winter conditions. Three lifts: Treasure Stoke, Bonanza and Nova will operate from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the ski area’s limited operating hours until further notice. The Wolf Creek Lodge will also open this weekend with a limited lunch menu, and Wolf Creek’s adult and child ski school programs will begin as well.

Skiers and riders looking to take advantage of the early snow can purchase a Nova Only lift ticket with access to Nova and Susan’s runs for $29. Tickets with access to all three lifts can be purchased for $50 for adults, $33 for seniors and $27 for children.
