Latest News

We've had a lot of people inquiring about when the Wolf Ridge Resort web cam would return and we spoke with Rick Bussey from...

When you ski or snowboard at Wolf Ridge Ski Resort you’ll enjoy unmatched views, crisp mountain air, well-groomed slopes and some new places to explore at Western North Carolina’s top-rated ski slope.

There is something for everyone from beginner to expert at this family-oriented resort now with expanded terrain, a new terrain park, new 1/2 mile trail and quad lift!

What’s New

This year during the off season at Wolf Ridge it’s been all about new terrain! With the widening of Breakaway Ski through through tunnel run on top of the mountain, two new ski-out trails off Breakaway, and the widening of the connector slope from Upper Lodge ski area to main slopes and lower lodge, getting around on the snow has gotten a lot more spacious!

The Ski School has also seen some expansion. At the bottom of Breakaway you’ll find a new Ski School training area serviced by a new magic carpet. You’ll also find 3rd Ski School Training area at the Lower Lodge which also has a new magic carpet. There’s plenty of room for learning!

The Terrain Park at Lower Streak and Broadway was expanded as well, making room for new features and lots of extreme snow sports action!

Area Description

wolf ridge ski resort

Wolf Ridge Ski Resort is a family-oriented resort that has undergone perhaps the largest growth and changes in North Carolina. In addition to a name change (they were formerly known as Wolf Laurel Ski Area), the resort has expanded this year with 15 additional acres of ski terrain, a new Quad Lift and a new Terrain Park. That 15 additional acres takes Wolf Ridge Ski Resort to 82 total acres of terrain on which to ride!

…And it doesn’t appear that “The Wolf” is going to stand pat with these upgrades! They have recently expanded, and now offer 15 ADDITIONAL acres of ski slopes and trails! As if that weren’t enough, they have also added a new quad lift, a new terrain park and much more!

For Great Après-ski Fun

The food service at Wolf Ridge has been expanded as well, with two convenient places to eat on the mountain—the Grill at the Lower Lodge and The Lodge Steak & Ribs at the Upper Lodge.

While on the mountain, you can warm up to a crackling fire at either of their large rustic lodges with plenty of room for your family and gear! Both lodges offer massive stone fireplaces. The Upper Wolf Ridge Lodge easily accommodates families and walk-ins. The Lower Wolf Ridge Lodge easily accommodates the many groups that call Wolf Ridge Ski Resort a favorite!
