Wolf Creek Ski Area is a high alpine ski area located in southern Colorado. With almost 650 hectares of skiable terrain, it offers almost unlimited winter fun! Even seasoned experts won't get bored here.

Rather than only having a couple of difficult runs, experienced skiers will find plenty of space to enjoy here: 45% of the terrain is designated advanced and expert terrain, providing more than enough opportunity to test your limits. However, that doesn't mean Wolf Creek isn't a great ski area for beginners and intermediates as well. The resort is so big there is also plenty of space left for the less experienced. In fact, it is a fantastic place to learn to ski and ride. The Ski School offers the usual beginner packages along with a range of special programmes.

At Wolf Creek Lodge, a cafeteria-like restaurant by the base station, you will find delicious food for reasonable prices. The Prospector Grill is known mostly for its excellent breakfast, although it also has dishes to offer at other times of day. The menu includes pizza, burgers, chili, biscuits and more.

Raven's Nest, right by Raven Chairlift's top station, features another two dining options. At Raven's Grill you're looking at grilled burgers and sausages along with numerous side dishes and desserts. Raven's Roost offers pizza, soups, salads and baked goods as well as hot and cold drinks.

If you've got a bit of a sweet tooth, check out The Continental for yummy cakes, baked goods, and quality coffee. At Alberta Grill at the foot of Alberta Lift, growling stomachs are silenced with burgers, snacks, coffee, hot chocolates and other drinks.
