Wolf Creek Terrain

Wolf Creek operates on 1,600 acres spread along a high alpine ridge in the Rio Grande National Forest, under a U.S. Forest Service permit and administration. The uniqueness of Wolf Creek lies in the 1,000 acres between Horseshoe Bowl and the Water Fall area, which is called the Alberta Lift area.

This wilderness provides everything from the challenging double black diamond runs of the Knife Ridge chutes to a variety of intermediate terrain where navigation skills are called into action. Groomed runs are also a part of the scheme complimenting the excitement and challenge of the Alberta Lift area. Traditional trails are the main core of Wolf Creek with 7 beginner and intermediate lifts servicing 600 acres of terrain all leading into the base area facilities.

What's New This Season at Wolf Creek

This 2014 – 2015 ski season, the Elma Lift will become a part of the mountain, adding more variety and character to the current Wolf Creek lift system. The Elma Lift is named after the Pitcher Family’s strong and faithful Black Labrador. The new fixed-grip triple chairlift is refurbished from the old Treasure chairlift and will be equipped with a new efficient electric motor and re-engineered parts that meet all current safety standards. Fifteen towers will span 460 vertical feet, with a capacity of 1,200 skiers per hour. Although this is one of Wolf Creek’s smaller lifts, it will provide access to an area of the mountain that is underutilized and establish an alternate route back to the base area from the Alberta Lift.
