Any Colo people know anything about Wolf Creek?

Is it worth the drive? My son is in Colorado Springs at college and was thinking about running down there. It's a 5 1/2 hour drive or so, which we are used to driving to Mammoth from our house, but we don't have anywhere closer worthwhile.
He has several places within a couple hours of C Springs.

Never been to Wolf Creek, but it is known for always having some of the best (and most) snow in CO.

If you're willing to travel a bit farther, I would highly recommend hitting up Telluride. It's probably the most beautiful ski area in the US. Has great terrian (both lift and hike-to), good snow, and is supposedly never crowded. I'd definetely check it out.

They get a ton of snow, but it's kind of flat.

From CS, most of the time, I would probably just stop at Monarch or Crested Butte. But there are days that it would be worth the extra drive. CB is a much, much better hill when they have snow.

Word for word what shreadhead said. Mucho snow, but low angle.

CB and Monarch are easy targets from Springs, 4 1/2 or 5 hours to the Butte, less to Monarch. Mirkwood Basin at Monarch is great.

Its not flat go ride knife ridge its about a 60 degree pitch with cliff drops. It is worth the drive when they get dumped on deep pow and awesome terrain.

I have never been there, but this year they look like they have significant more snow than most CO. resorts. Over 250" of snow ytd. Thats 2X what CB has.
