“My husband’s family has been skiing/snowboarding at Wolf Ridge for over 35 years and continues to go back. Since this was the first year our kids would be skiing, we paid for private lessons, which turned out to be phenomenal. Sophia and Noah had our kids (ages 6 and 8) skiing with full confidence in one hour. We had an awesome time and made great memories.
