Predominately tree skiing and boarding, these 1,000 acres have a few groomed trails for intermediates' interests and enjoyment. D. Boyce (High Speed Poma Surface Lift) operates occasionally as a memento to times past. This lift services intermediate and expert terrain.
Many of the accommodation, vacation rental, and condo rental and chalet rental options are with beautiful views of the lifts here.
The Wolf Creek Lodge is well known for delicious, affordable food.
On busy days and weekends “The Outside Grill” is in operation. This can be the place for a quick bite between runs. The many picnic tables on the lodge sundeck are nearby.

The Base Camp is located above the Ski Patrol or First Aid Room, FAR, next to the Raven Lift. This building is a warm and spacious location for those who wish to bring their own picnic lunches. Hot and cold beverages and snacks are available here also. The sundeck at Base Camp is commodious and offers great views of the nearby slopes.
Only 30minute away is Pagosa with approximately 65 percent of county land in the San Juan National Forest.
It is located approximately 35 miles (56 km) north of the New Mexico
border, nestled at 7,000 feet (2,100 m) on the Western Slope of the Continental Divide. This combination of high desert plateau and dramatic Rocky Mountains to the north and east creates an unusually mild climate, especially in the summer months, when compared with much of the surrounding Southwest. Pagosa is favored with around 300 days of sun each year, as well as four distinct seasons. It also has many wonderful and welcoming accommodations, vacation rentals and chalet rentals.
