How Colorado’s Independent Wolf Creek Ski Area Plans to Navigate a Coronavirus Reopening
Unlike Vail Resorts, which last week announced a reservation system that requires pass holders to book high-season ski days well in advance, Wolf Creek is adjusting its pricing.
Almost 4,200 Wolf Creek skiers responded to a survey sent by the ski area’s owner, Davey Pitcher. They were largely from New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma as well as surrounding communities like Pagosa Springs and South Fork. Typical Wolf Creek skiers.
They all said, heck yeah they wanted to ski this season. And they were ready to do whatever it takes to get on the lifts. Masks, social distancing and drastically changed food service that would largely entail dining in cars and parking lots were just fine if it meant they could ski.
“It’s encouraging they were willing to modify their behavior this winter,” Pitcher said.
