I'll be up there the first week in Jan. too! I go every year that week, its always a good week accept for all the avelanches that block the pass. I'll also be up there the first week of Nov. starting the 5th and maybe through the 8th. Honostly I try and go up there as much as I can as it's only a 3 and half hour drive and it beats most of what NM has to offer hands down.

I live in Texas, but my normal riding buddy is in Albuquerque. We normally ride Sandia & Santa Fe, occasionally Angel Fire (preferred over Taos). We are looking forward to Wolf Creek this year, as we keep hearing great things about it. Any advice on lodging, routes from Albuquerque, any nightlife, or anything else?

Really stoked -- WC is open now! We may go in the next couple of weeks! Looks like an AWESOME year for the Southwest!

Yes I think we are in for a really good season this year and I am stoked! Even Sandia is fun as long as they have a bunch of snow. Wolf creek is a great mountain to ride with more pow than you could ever need! The route I take is I 25 to 550 (through Bernalillo NM) 550 to the two indian tents (Think its called the Apache casino or something) anyway its the Dulce exit and when you see the two tee pee's on your left your there. Take that road through the reservation and hang a right toward Dulce then make a left on 84 to Pagosa. This route is 3 to 3.5 hours depending on speed.

I Normally stay at the High Country Lodge which is toward Wolf creek up the road a bit on the left hand side. Its out of town but they offer lift tickets with rooms and they are pretty reasonable. If you want night life there is a Great local brewery Called Pagosa Brewery on the west end of town along with two other bars on that side. Downtown theres Beavers and its attached to a hotel. This is a great op. if you want to party lots as you dont have to drive anyware. There are three other bars with in walking distance from there and the hot springs are right across the street from beavers.

South Fork usually has pretty inexpensive lodging available and is close. If you stay in Pagosa you might get stuck if they get nailed and shut the pass down. See you guys there!

Mr. Right has a good point there, the pass does get closed often on the pagosa side. I just havent heard much in terms of any night life in South Fork?

P.S. I feel like a perv cause I can't stop stairing at your avator...

Southfork has a couple of watering holes, but it's dead in comparison to Pagosa. For apres stuff, food, beverages, etc, Pagosa is way better, but as it's been said the pass can close on that side. It will also close on the Southfork side, but it happens much, much less.
