Weather forecasters are predicting a big El Niño winter for Pagosa Springs this year and the Pagosa Nordic Club (PNC) is predicting someone will win a free Wolf Creek Ski Area season pass.

With the deep snows expected this year due to the El Niño weather pattern, the PNC is preparing to handle the predicted above-average snowfall this winter.

The PNC early season membership drive is underway until Friday Oct. 2, at 5 p.m. Your paid $25 individual membership or $40 family membership automatically enters you into a drawing for a free Wolf Creek Ski Area season ski pass. Don’t miss this opportunity, become a member today at

The drawing will be held on Friday, Oct. 2, at a location yet to be determined. Wolf Creek Ski Area early season pass prices are available until Sunday Oct. 4, so if you do not win, you still have time to get your Wolf Creek early season pass pricing. PNC has given a season pass away for the last three seasons.
