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. The traditional trails are the main core of Wolf Creek with 6 lifts servicing 600 acres of terrain all leading into the base area facilities.

What's New This Season at Wolf Creek

Wolf Creek Ski Area is replacing the Treasure Lift, which is one of Wolf Creek’s main lifts connecting guests to a wide variety of terrain with a new, Doppelmayr, detachable, high-speed quad. The new Treasure Stoke Lift will provide guests with an easier and more pleasurable loading and unloading experience. The ride up will be a little over six minutes; the capacity will remain the same, providing that low- density on-mountain experience that Wolf Creek is known for. Treasure Stoke will be a great improvement to the core of the Wolf Creek lift system.
