The Weekender // October 12th - 14th

Wolf Creek Opens - Saturday, October 13th
Wolf Creek Ski Area
Time to tune the skis and boards, because ski season is already here! Wolf Creek Ski Area is going to be the first in the nation to open this upcoming ski season. Why such an early opening? We can all thank the 20 inches of snow dumped on the mountain over the past 72 hours. For the next few weekends, beginning Saturday October 13th, three of the ski lifts will be open, along with the Wolf Creek Lodge offering a limited lunch menu and the Pathfinder Bar. The Ski School will also be open for both adults and children when the mountain opens. And Purg opens Nov. 17th!
