Skiers – start your engines. Right on cue, Wolf Creek is slated for its traditional Halloween opening this year. Today (Oct. 31) Wolfie is opening its Nova and Magic Carpet lifts from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. for your early season shredding pleasure. Lift tickets are $31 or a whopping $6 for kids 5 and younger.
To add to the “spooktacular” fun, Wolf Creek is also featuring a haunted house, which will be accessible via the Lynx Lift until dusk.
Grooming crews have been working feverishly to buff out the 17 inches the ski area has received so far this season, including 5 from the most recent storm. After Thursday’s opening, Wolf Creek will revert to a weekends-only schedule until Mother Nature returns with more of the goods.
And, of course, costumes are encouraged – please just nothing that will make for a scary dismount from the lift.
