Wolf Creek Resort is located in the southern part of Colorado in the San Juan and Rio Grande national forest near Pagosa Springs and South Fork. It is known as having the most snow in Colorado receiving an average annual snowfall of 465 inches of natural powder. Wolf Creek Resort's combination of excellent snow and non-existent lift lines make it a favorite of skiers in the Southwest and worth the trip for someone seeking an off-the-beaten path mountain.
