As someone that had only skied at Wolf once before ( ~10 years ago in what was a very subpar experience which lead me to make Cataloochee my go to hill) I have to say that I was impressed this go around. The conditions were great (especially considering they had been down to just 4 runs open a few days earlier) and the only real icy areas were the narrow, high-traffic parts of runs. The lift lines were just a few minutes at most around lunch and all of the employees were very friendly. It would have been nice to have had more of the mountain open, but what was open was a lot of fun and I do think Wolf has some really good, varied terrain. There were still some issues, but nothing major and it was a great day of riding.

Basically, give Wolf a shot if you haven't been in awhile.

Bought a discounted lift ticket again this year, just waiting for them to open up most, if not all of their terrain - It's 4 hours from Cary so I'm not driving up for 4 green trails. Still waiting.

I get it, it was a tough early January but what are they waiting on? I assume they are riding some financial line of visitors vs costs, but the biggest weekend for skiing has passed, and they had 4 greens open. I realize they finally opened a few more trails, but we're halfway through the season. Cat is 30 mins away and has had multiple days fully open already this season.

They have 8 runs open the last 3 days and will probably be at 10 tomorrow. They also don't hesitate opening runs with natural coverage only when they can . We were there the last 3 days and had a lot of fun. Trust me , there are a couple of trails open now that are not greens.

If the people im charge of their group rates still have an easy going attitude its a great place for discounted lift tix. Grab some newfound friends from the full price lift ticket lines, walk over with a group of 8....discount!
