Details

The Wolf Creek backcountry is known for its early season snowfalls and powdery backcountry snow.  We will stay in South Fork and ski the backcountry near Wolf Creek.  Drive on Monday, ski Tues/Wed/Thurs, return Friday.  Mileage and elevation gain are estimated over the course of 3 days of skiing and may not be distributed evenly between the days.  We may run a car shuttle in one area where the rise is about 600' and the downhill portion is 2000'.

Expenses:

  1. Shared fuel for driving
  2. Shared or single lodging (about $35 shared/$50 single per night X 4 nights)
  3. Meals.  Leader will attempt to find lodging with cooking facilities or at least microwave/fridge so you can save $$$ on food.

 

There is a grocery store in town so you can buy groceries when you arrive.  If we don't want to ski one day or part of a day, there may be an option to drive over to Pagosa Springs and enjoy the  hot springs.  

Lodging will probably be here, leader will take care of reservations. http://www.foothillslodgeandcabins.com
