We visited the ski lodge as part of our friend’s birthday celebration. We arrived at our vacation rental around 7p by that time it was pitch black driving up the mountain. I contacted the ski lodge to find out where to get something to eat as we expected to do grocery shopping once we got settled. I spoke to Sharon (such a sweetheart). She politely let us know there’s no grocery store within 15-25 miles of the lodge. She recommended the grill located at the lodge since it was getting late. The kitchen staff Ms Vicki, Mr Harry & 2 other extremely sweet ladies accommodated a party of 6 by preparing everything we asked for fresh. The next day we returned to the lodge and the ski instructor Will helped my family with lessons. He was very encouraging and patient and keep the lesson fun. The lodge could use some updates but the family atmosphere made up for what whatever atheistic issues it had. Thank you all for contributing to a great weekend
Had an awesome time at Wolf Ridge Ski Resort. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Had a great ski lesson with two of the nicest guys Tim and Jim. It was a girl's weekend and we decided to take ski lessons at Wolf Ridge. Tim and Jim were very patient with us they were guiding and teaching us how to ski!! Awesome experience!
