Wolf Creek School Program

Every winter, all middle school students have the opportunity to participate in the Wolf Creek School Program.  For over 30 years, the middle school has partnered with Wolf Creek Ski Area to teach our students how to ski and/or snowboard. Students go to the mountain after Christmas break where they are taught at their skill level by a Wolf Creek ski instructor. Students will engage in a 2-hour lesson in the morning and then explore the mountain with an instructor in the afternoon.  We strive for students to become strong skiers and/or snowboarders and embrace the active, healthy lifestyle that Colorado is known for. Additionally, this program exposes students to the Colorado ski industry and many of our students go on to work at Wolf Creek Ski Area later in life. If you are new to the Wolf Creek School Program, please read the parent letter below.

A huge bonus to this program are the Family Days.   Wolf Creek Ski Area offers family days following the school program to encourage participation.  If your child participates in the school program, the whole family qualifies for reduced lift tickets, lessons, and rentals ($15 per day per person!).  Please encourage your child to fully participate in this outstanding program, and if you get a chance, thank Wolf Creek Ski Area for offering this to our community. Please reference our school calendar for upcoming dates or see them listed below.

All ski days will be on Fridays.  We will depart at 8:30 am and return at 4:45 pm - parent pick will be necessary.
