Another Great Season at Wolf Creek Ski Area

Wolf Creek Ski Area had a great closing weekend with the Howlin’ Wolf Super G, a College Day and a Local Appreciation Day.

Wolf Creek’s closing day was a beautiful bluebird day with excellent ski conditions to end the year on a super note. The skier count was just shy of matching the 2015-2016 ski season with approximately 204,000 skier visits. Despite Wolf Creek having a slow start, the season ended strong with great snow and attendance.
