Wolf Creek's rare combination of excellent snow and non-existent lift lines make it a favorite of skiers in the Southwest—and well worth the trip for anyone seeking an off-the-beaten path gem. Its location in the San Juan mountains averages 465" of snow each year, and it's often the case that this mountain has ample fresh powder when others in Colorado don't. With 1600 acres (25% of which are advanced; the rest beginner and intermediate) and seven lifts, there's ample terrain for skiers of all abilities.
