South Fork provides the perfect basecamp for your next Winter Adventure

Cabin fever? Winter blues? Get out and enjoy the 255+ miles of groomed rec trails. Stop to enjoy the glittering landscape beneath the bright blue sky. Go ice skating at the public rink at Rickle Park, join a moonlight snowshoe hike with the Silverthreaders, or spend the day knee-deep in powder at Wolf Creek. Snow is abundant in the San Juan Mountains, and a variety of winter recreation is just a snowball’s throw from any of South Fork’s lodging options.

[1] Powder Country Wolf Creek Ski Area boasts the most snow in Colorado year after year with an average of 430+ inches.

[2] Skip the Crowds  Discover little traffic, short lift lines (seriously…maybe 10 people), and untouched powder everywhere. Plus, we're only 4½ hrs from Denver or ABQ, and just 3½ hrs from CO Springs

[3] Super Affordable   South Fork and Wolf Creek Ski area are so affordable you can stretch a two-day vacation budget for other areas into four days here!  Lodging • DiningRentals

[4] Remote Yet Accessible  Stop Looking For the Remote. You've found it. Luckily, it's only a few hours away…without routing you down the traffic-jammed I-70. Map

[5] Endless Possibilities  Tired of skiing or just seeking a different powder adventure? Try exploring the back-country on cross country skis or snowshoes or find a lake for ice fishing. If a great time involves fast machines roaring through heaps of snow, check out our 255 miles of groomed snowmobile trails with innumerable off-trail opportunities on wide-open ridges, rolling parks and steep climbs. Access to Colorado’s most scenic wintertime vistas at 12,000+ feet will take your breath away! Affordable rentals won't.  SnowmobilingNordic Skiing/SnowshoeingSledding & Skating

Experience something you truly get to be a part of, just sitting in a quiet space up here in the mountains - it’s a whole peacefulness that comes over you. South Fork’s unique because it’s a small location that gets you away from all the hustle-and-bustle and let’s you REALLY experience the mountains with your family. South Fork is quiet, not overwhelmed with people. You go a mile out of town in any direction and you’re pretty much by yourself. The uncluttered scenery is hard to beat, and hard to describe. We love the winters here because the sunshine and bluebird skies are beautiful.
