Wolf Creek Ski Area had its beginnings in 1938, when Kelly Boyce installed a rope tow on the north side near the summit of Wolf Creek Pass. The lift was driven by an old Chevy truck with tickets at $1 per day. That same summer, the Civilian Conservation Corps, under contract from the Forest Service, built a warming shelter for the new ski area — and the Colorado Department of Highways graded a dirt road to the new ski tow and hut.
