Thanks to the diligent work of the ski patrol, getting caught in an inbounds avalanche is exceptionally unlikely anywhere in Colorado Ski Country. However, if Mother Nature conspires against you and you get caught in a slide, there’s a good chance that a specially trained Ski Patrol doggy will dig you out, lick your face,
and ply you with brandy.
Last season, Wolf Creek’s Patrol Director Eric Dietemeyer showed us this cool training session for Rico, one of their trusted rescue dogs.
On Saturday, October 26 Wolf Creek Ski Area opened a significant improvement to the core of its chairlift system. The Treasure Stoke chairlift, a six-person high-speed detachable made by Doppelmayr, replaces the existing Treasure lift and will provide guests with an easier loading and unloading experience. The ride up will be a little over six minutes; however, the lift’s capacity will remain the same. This will allow skiers and riders more time on the snow while preserving Wolf Creek’s low-density on-mountain experience.
Wolf Creek will reopen on Saturday, November 2 and Sunday, November 3 and tentatively plans to open for the season on Friday, November 8. Having received 31 inches of snow in the season to date, the mountain presently has a 19-inch base. Be sure to check Wolf Creek’s snow report through the week for updates about the upcoming weekend’s terrain and lift openings.

When we arrived back at our condo after a fun day on Winter Park’s slopes, I stopped and marveled. Our front entryway looked like a bomb had gone off and the carnage was an onslaught of gloves, boots, helmets and jackets.
You have got some great moves. Really, you must. Because with the storms that have been pounding us here in Colorado, it’s clear that there must be some seriously stylin’ snowdancing going on…

Where do you ski in Colorado? If you’re like many of us, you’ve got a home resort that you return to year after year, week after week and day after day. You love your resort. You know every roller and glade. You know where to farm powder and you’ve sworn never to divulge the locale. You’re plugged into the best season pass deals and you’ve got your favorite spots for lunch, beer and coffee. If you’ve got kids, they’ve grown up skiing at this resort. It’s their second home.
So why would you try some place new?
