Riverside at Rio Grande Club - Wolf Creek, CO

Riverside at Rio Grande is a new shared ownership resort just down the mountain from Wolf Creek on the East side. Normally, I stay on the west side of the pass in Pagosa Springs due to proximity to PHX, but got an offer to come up and check out the new resort.

I am going to take a trip to Wolf Creek in January and would be there this week with the 4' dump, but am stuck moving.

Check out some of the details on their golf course and other amenities.

THE CLUB BOASTS an 18-hole championship course given six stars by Golf Digest. The Club opened in 2003 to rave reviews, and was ranked by Golf Digest as #6 in the Top 10 Best New Upscale Courses. With the highest elevation at over 8500 feet, you can expect your golf ball to fly beyond your wildest dreams. This is pure mountain golf at its finest.

AS AN OWNER AT RIVERSIDE, you’ll enjoy views of the Rio Grande River and private access to the longest and wildest continuous stretch of Gold Medal water in Colorado. You’ll find 20 miles of hungry cutthroats, browns and rainbows on one of the most under-fished rivers in the state. There are over 500 miles of tributaries and creeks, as well as mountain lakes to keep you busy all year-round.

WITH THAT MUCH WATER, it’s not unusual to go all day long without seeing another angler. You might just get lonely if it weren’t for the Fishing Lodge located a short walk from your doorstep at Riverside. Here, you can cozy up to the fire in the cooler months, or sit out on the wrap around porch and swap fish tales until it’s time for dinner. If you love to fish, this must be heaven.

Wolf Creek is my favorite mountain to ski, but most specifically Alberta on a powder day. Trees. No lift lines. Waterfall area. Hiking. Just perfection. Run after run. Having a great place to stay just minutes away is even better. Especially because the East Side of the pass rarely closes due to avalanche danger.

Thanks Vik for the invite. Cannot wait.
