The descent for this area is pretty short, but it does get steep. You start out going through the trees, and as it gets steeper, it becomes an avy path. The hanging meadow is a short pitch that is void of trees, but be careful because it is prone to avalanches caused by backcountry skiers. Once you are down through the meadow, you can cut hard left to get back to the first turnoff and take a quick skin back up to the warming hut or you can continue NW and go down to 7 Mile, which is a much longer run.[more]
Lobo Overlook is a quick access fun area right off of Wolf Creek Pass and it is snowmobile free. It has many moderates and fun tree skiing. Relatively safe it can afford some great skiing when no where else in Colorado has snow.
How to Get There
Right at the top of the pass on the north side of the Highway is a parking area. Head up the trail/road toward the north to the top of what is called Lobo Overlook which offers great views toward the south and the top of Wolf Creek ski area.
