    on March 8 | in Insider Secrets, Skiing & Snowboarding, Wolf Creek | by | with Comments Off on Let’s Check in with Wolf Creek in Southern Colorado

     

    wcsa_nov16-0045Wolf Creek Ski Area is known for deep powder and its great mix of beautiful pristine terrain. Every ability level and age group enjoys the quality and abundance of snow as well as the friendly atmosphere that is eminently present.

    Located in Southern Colorado, Wolf Creek has a reputation for early-season skiing, excellent homemade food and pastries available in the lodge, and is notorious for receiving the most snow in the state. So far this season, Wolf Creek has received 339 inches of snow, and given that this is an El Nino year, that number could climb much higher before the season ends.

    By Kristen Lummis, aka Brave Ski Mom

    We recently visited Sunlight Mountain Resort, a family-owned ski area located between Carbondale and Glenwood Springs.

    On this particular day, the kids on snow outnumbered the adults by about 2-to-1. The local Buddy Werner racing team was practicing for their upcoming state meet. The Ski and Ride School was doing a booming business, with lessons all over the mountain.

    Sunlight is popular with local and visiting families for lots of reasons. The mountain has nearly 700 skiable acres rising above one base. Parking is close in. Prices, for everything from lift tickets to hamburgers, are low.

    Since 1998, Sunlight has offered free season passes to local fourth graders (teeing these kids up perfectly to take advantage of CSCUSA’s 5th and 6th grade passes).

    It’s no wonder Sunlight is a family favorite. Continue Reading
