Wolf Creek Ski Area Becomes Colorado's First Ski Area To Be Fully Solar Powered

Colorado’s Wolf Creek Ski Area has been a longtime leader in sustainable shredding. Beginning in 2006, Wolf Creek committed to purchasing 100 percent of its energy with wind and solar credits. Now, the homespun hill is showing its larger, more well-heeled neighbors how to buck talk and take action when it comes to protecting our winters. With the help of the San Luis Valley Rural Electric Cooperative (SLVREC), Wolf Creek will now rely on a solar array in the San Luis Valley to power all of its operations, lifts and buildings.

“Carbon will make skiing obsolete if we’re not careful,” Wolf Creek CEO Davey Pitcher told Teton Gravity Research. With an expansion set to open up previously inaccessible stashes of powder for the 2018-2019 season, it’s no wonder the mountain known for consistent snowfall is going all in to protect what mother nature gave it.  

Wolf Creek, you’ve certainly earned an Unofficial salute.
