After a series of storm systems dumped snow all across Utah and Colorado, today, we bring you news that the first resort in the Northern Hemisphere is set to open for the season this Saturday, October 13th.
Wolf Creek, located in Pagosa Springs, CO, has just announced that after 12 inches on Monday, October 8th with another 8 inches yesterday, October 10th, the resort has enough of a base to start this season’s operations. Wolf Creek’s Nova lift, a beginner double chair, will be operating from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm with limited access and early season conditions with lift tickets coming in at $29 for all ages. Wolf Creek’s Treasure Stoke and Bonanza lifts, which afford more advanced terrain, will also be opening with limited access and early season conditions during the same time frame. Lift tickets that will give riders access to all three lifts will be $50 for adults, $33 for seniors, and $27 for children. Wolf Creek will remain open on weekends only for the foreseeable future.
Wolf Creek’s October 13th opening marks the first official resort opening in the Northern Hemisphere and beats out two other Colorado resorts, Arapahoe Basin and Loveland, which have both historically claimed first spinning chair of the season. Let it snow!
