Wolf Creek Ski Team hopes to use Pirate Hill

At the Archuleta School District (ASD) meeting on Nov. 11, the Wolf Creek Ski Team (WCST) coaches asked the board for permission to use Pirate Hill.

Coaches Dean Sell, Erik Hittle and Chris Pitcher made the presentation. Pirate Hill is located on high school property behind the bus barn.

Sell estimated the vertical at 200 feet and being a north facing slope, believes it should hold snow.

Pitcher explained the area they hope to utilize is the same site where the Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District recently completed a sewer line.

The area has been graded and seeded, and is essentially clear of obstacles.
