Video: Deep in Wolf Creek

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Although small, remote, and perhaps lacking the 'gnar' of some other CO resorts, Wolfie always seems to come through with big snow, amazing tree shots, and non-existent crowds. My group and I had an amazing 2 days there in early March when a storm cycle brought 3 feet in 3 days. The skiing was nothing short of all-time.

Great video & perfectly matched music! Looks like y'all timed it perfectly. Did your bags ever show?

Technically, yes - but the next morning at DIA. We decided to ditch the bags, borrow clothes from some nearby friends, and rent equipment for 4 days. Would have had to sacrifice a ski day if we waited for the bags and that would have been devastating.

Airline wouldn't deliver your bags to you? Pretty standard for them to deliver them to where ever your staying. Heck I once had an airline lose my bag flying from ATL to JFk. I flew a different Airline to Israel and the original airline sent my bag to Israel. Took them almost two weeks but they also paid for me to buy a bunch of clothes while I was in Israel.

My last trip my skis didn't make it on my plane. They were delivered 9:30 the next morning. I decided to wait for them rather than renting. In part because I wasn't sure what would happen if they tried to deliver them and I wasn't there.

Nice vid, guessing ski/snowboard boots were carry-on?

I think you missed how Wolf Creek threads are supposed to go on this board.

 

You need to correct your post to "Despite Wolf Creek having one of the best snow/skier ratios in the United States, everything 'worth skiing' was skied out by 11:00 AM because the place is so flat."

 

I'll give you some time to make the proper edits to your post.

 

A great vid! It is great to see people getting after it.

Another technicality in the story - we were "late" to check in due to a car fire on a major highway next to the airport, which caused our over-sized ski bags to miss the plane. We showed up 30 minutes prior to departure and they couldn't manage to get our bags on. Also, we were trying to get to Pagosa the next night and they didn't deliver anywhere west of Salida (and that would have cost $160 per bag). Sh*t happens!
