Wolf Creek Opens in Colorado on 8″ of Snow

Pagosa Springs, CO – Base depths may have been only a sparse eight inches, but that was enough to convince the Pitcher family, owners of Colorado’s Wolf Creek ski area, to open for the Halloween weekend.

Wolf Creek opened its Nova chairlift at 9 a.m. yesterday, and operations continue through 4 p.m. today on eight inches of natural and machine-made snow. The resort’s Nova and Susan‘s runs are open for skiing and riding.

Lift tickets are reduced to $20, and anyone wearing a Halloween costume receives a free Wolf Creek sticker. The Ski School is available for lessons including the Wolf Pup Program. The Treasure Sports Shop is open and ski and snowboard rentals are available. Burgers, brats and hot dogs are available for lunch in the Upper Lodge.

Wolf Creek officials say that the ski area will be open on weekends “until further notice.” More terrain will open as soon as the mountain receives more snow.
That now makes three ski areas open in Colorado this weekend, following Loveland’s and A-Basin’s season launches, both of which occurred on Thursday.
