Something for Everyone at Wolf Creek

Ahhh, Colorado.  The snow, the mountains, the freedom.

People come from far and wide to enjoy Colorado’s incredible back yard.  They come for the great snow, challenging terrain, and endless supply of adrenaline.  They come for the gentle bunny slopes, experienced instructors, and excitement for learning a new sport.  And, they come for the breathtaking views, appreciation for the outdoors and quality time with friends and family.

In search of a ski resort that really holds true to it’s roots, I visited Wolf Creek in Southwestern Colorado.  Known for having the most snow in Colorado, the mountain proved to be a place where the skiers ski.  It’s a no nonsense kind of “resort” that really focuses on snowsports.  Families and first-timers flock to the hills to take advantage of the convenience and affordability of a small resort, matched with the great snow and varied terrain of larger resorts, plus the friendly atmosphere and small-town feel of a second-generation run family-operated resort. It was pretty refreshing to see it right here, all in one place.

There really is something for everyone.

Cat Skiing At Ski Cooper’s Chicago Ridge is a Pure Colorado Ski Country Experience

Tucked away on top of Tennessee Pass, you’ll find a ski resort that packs in big adventure and small town charm. Imagine great snow, close-in parking, affordable lift tickets, and no lift lines.  This is Ski Cooper.

While there is access to a variety of trails on their two chairlifts (well five if you count the platter, handle tow, and Colorado’s longest Magic Carpet), they have one very awesome trick in their back pocket: CAT SKIING!

The Chicago Ridge Snowcat day trip promises picturesque views and backcountry comfort.  Here, you’ll unpack your skis and boards and launch into open bowls and gladed terrain.  The cozy snowcat drops you at the top of each run, so you can enjoy turn after powdery turn of crowd-free skiing.  Reenergize with a gourmet lunch inside a heated yurt.  This is the way backcountry skiing was meant to be enjoyed.   It’s an adventure that will leave you grinning from ear to ear.

For those who aren’t interested in bringing their skis, Ski Cooper also offers sightseeing snowcat tours, so you can enjoy magestic winter views without squeezing your feet into ski boots.

Reserve your seat in advance, or book out the entire cat!  This is one snowday you don’t want to miss.
