Wolf Creek Ski Area To Open Halloween

As of Halloween, Colorado skiers will have another world class area open, Wolf Creek Ski Area, in the Southwest corner of the state, announced Friday that it will be opening two runs on Oct. 31.

The ski area's marketing director, Rosanne Haidorfer-Pitcher, told The Durango Herald that they will open two runs in the beginners area, but if they get more snow in the next week, they would open other parts of the area.

Haidorfer-Pitcher said the depth at mid-mountain is 12 inches, and conditions are packed powder and powder.

The Vail Daily reported Friday that kids are encouraged to wear their costumes on opening day on the beginner hill, and there will also be a pumpkin carving contest.

Wolf Creek Ski Area is located on Wolf Creek Pass between South Fork and Pagosa Springs. It boasts itself as the resort with the most snow in Colorado with 465 inches of natural snowfall annually, and is one of the least developed ski resorts in the state.
