The greatest thing about coming on up to Ski the Wolf? The coming up part only involves just a 35 minute scenic drive from Asheville!

What Makes It Great

Five miles off of I-26, appropriately designated as a Scenic Highway, stands Wolf Ridge Resort. The Wolf is a favorite amongst locals looking for a quick trip to the ski slopes. The Wolf operates on 62 acres of enjoyable ski terrain that is covered in an average of 60-80 inches of snow per year.  Skiers and Snowboarders will enjoy Wolf Ridge’s recent terrain makeover which includes, updates to the terrain park and widened trails which provide better access to the lodge. Wolf Ridge’s Lower Lodge serves as a full service ski station for visitors: offering tickets, rental equipment, dining and a gift shop. Wolf Ridge Resort has a variety of year-round accommodations available that provide a wonderful base camp for your next visit to Asheville.
