Wolf Creek Ski Area Cross Country Skiing

East of Durango and Pagosa Springs in the San Juan Mountains, the Wolf Creek ski area has nearly 10 kilometers of cross country ski trails. To get there take the ski road at the end of the lower parking lot to Alberta Park. A 4 kilometer loop goes around the natural meadows. An additional 6 kilometer loop takes you down to Alberta Reservior and back through the trees. Tracks are groomed regularly for both classical and skate skiers. Snowshoers are welcome. Please clean up after your dogs. Use of the cross country trail is compliments of Wolf Creek Ski Area — no charge. Please allow enough time to complete the tour well before dark. This area is not patrolled — please take a friend.

Looking for nightlife? Well, theres not much at the base, so head to Bear Creek or Timbers.

The cross country skiing at Wolf Creek is located on US160 between Pagosa Springs and South Fork.
