Wolf Mountain

Wolf Mountain, once known as Wolf Creek Ski Resort, is a popular ski resort close to Eden and within the Ogden Mountains (which is part of the Rocky Mountain range) and less than 50 miles from Salt Lake City. The location means open season begins in November and runs through to the beginning of April. From 9 a.m. each morning until 9 p.m. each night, the slopes are open and well-lit once the sun dips down. There are, on average, 300 inches of snowfall annually at Wolf Creek Ski Resort and 100 acres of well-groomed, skiable mountain terrain.

Though advanced skiers might not offer too many accolades to Wolf Creek Utah, beginners love it for slopes that are ideal for novice boarders and skiers. In fact, Wolf Creek Ski Resort is widely acknowledged as the best place to take the kids or someone new to the sport. It is recognized as an extremely family-friendly recreation area with a laid back atmosphere and very reasonably priced tickets. At the bunny hill, beginners will enjoy a worry-free experience while riding up the slope via the Magic Carpet, the most beginner-friendly type of lift available.

Even though Wolf Mountain is renowned as an ideal beginners mountain, every ski and snowboarding level is accommodated, making it an attractive bet for the whole family who can also enjoy accommodation at nearby Ogden hotels. Advanced skiers will enjoy an average of 20 percent advance runs, intermediates a 50 percent cut, and beginners are on par with pros, enjoying a 20 percent stake in total ski runs. Night skiers will enjoy the entire range for skiing, not just a partial section.

The double chair at Wolf Creek Utah, called Wolfdeedo, was created entirely for new skiers and snowboarders. The double chair lifts riders to the a slope thought of as one of the best novice ski slopes in the region. The second double chair, called Howling Wolf, travels to a mountain section where there is a trail ideal for both beginners and intermediates that spans two miles. There is also one surface lift and one triple chair lift. New owners have also expanded Wolf’s Lair Terrain Park, doubling the size and adding more features that now total twenty for novice and mid-level free-riders.

Other improvements at Wolf Mountain include modern snow-making equipment that pumps out a 60 percent coverage and a renovated beginners area, or bunny hill as some call it. Kids Zone and the Wolf Mountain Learning Center Yurt are both new installments offering a superior, and hassle-free place for parents to drop off their children for both programs and rising lessons, both popular things to do for kids visiting the mountain.

Wolf Creek Ski Resort enjoys a direct relationship with a property management company, outsourcing all lodging needs while still maintaining some of the best deals around for Utah vacations. The accommodations come in form of private house rentals that accommodate both small and large families and groups. The homes are modern, spacious, ideally equipped for families, and conveniently located within immediate access to Wolf Mountain.
