Wolf Creek is one of my favorite places to go. Although I have niver ridden at the ski area, just hit the bakcountry off the pass. Never the less I've gotten lot's of great views of the resort. It's not a huge place, more of a mom n pop operation. Alberta Peak and the Horseshoe/waterfall area look nice. I've heard the lower part of the runs can get a little flat. I don't think it's much of a problem, but maybe it gets slooooow at times. Snowfall in March is usually plentiful around then. You are also within 2-3 hours of Silverton. If the unguided riding is happening by then, it might be worth a trip down there for a day.

5 days will definitely allow you to hit up the Wolf Creek and ride most everything at the resort. If you do backcountry, the riding on the pass is some of the best Colorado has to offer. A few pics from the pass.



and the powder, well it can be the light, fluffy, and plentiful...
