We did not go to the ski lodge, but just took the drive. Absolutely beautiful. Easy driving, and numerous turn offs for pictures. Fall foliage has started, and snow up on the Pass, but roads were cleared. Definitely take this drive.

Awesome place for skiing and boarding and just hanging out in one of the restaurants is always fun too. Professionally run and the staff are all so nice.

Wolf Creek is a beautiful place to ski. They get lot of snow here and that makes for great ski conditions. It is an inspiring place to ski. Go see it for yourself and see if it doesn't inspire you.

Of course the first time we go it's unseasonably dry. Not much snow, runs are pretty short but pretty good for relatively new skiers. I'm 41 and ski mostly blues and wide open blacks.

The drive is beautiful, the mountains still had snow in May and you again cross the Continental Divide. We have visited in winter and the skiing is awesome with major snow fall. However, we have enjoyed the area in all seasons.

My husband and I are cautious intermediate skiers, and Wolf Creek Ski Resort has a great variety of runs for all types of skiers! Beautiful skiing and scenery!

Not much different in timing. If you are planning to stay overnight I'd go Pagosa Springs, better places to lodge & much better places to eat.

I found this on Wolf Creek's website: From the South Fork side, Alamosa Bus Company runs a shuttle service to the ski area. They only offer one bus schedule a day.
