The race to open first in Colorado has been won by Wolf Creek. The ski area will be open for the season with weekends only, beginning Saturday, October 13th and Sunday, October 14th.
Wolf Creek received 12 inches (30 centimetres) Monday, October 8th with another 8 inches today, October 10th. The settled midway base is 14 inches with 20 inches year-to-date this season.
Treasure Stoke, Bonanza and Nova lifts will also be operating with very early season conditions and obstacles. Lift tickets to access Treasure, Bonanza and Nova will be $50 for adults, $33 for seniors and $27 for children.
The Wolf Creek Lodge will be open with a limited lunch menu. Pathfinder Bar will also be open.
The Ski School will be available for both adults and children, including the Wolf Pup Program. The Ski Rental and Boarder Dome will be open, as well as Treasure Sports.
The final days of construction for the Charity Jane Express, Wolf Creek’s 10th lift, are coming together with the cable splice complete and now moving into the critical wiring stage.
The new lift is a Doppelmayr high-speed, detachable quad chairlift named the Charity Jane Express. The name is a salute to Charity Jane Pitcher, past owner of Wolf Creek Ski Area. The new Charity Jane Express will be the third chairlift in the spacious 900-acre Alberta Area.
