I emailed the Wolf Creek Ski Area and inquired about their status in the summer and any possible resupply. Looks like a long hitch into Pagosa Springs or South Fork.
Alternatively, hikers can rent a car in Durango, drive the 87 miles to Wolf Creek Pass and dig in a cache for yourselves. Ditto at Cumbres Pass. Then go back to Durango, turn in the car, and in your case, take the scenic railroad all the way to Silverton, hitch up to the trail and go south.
Others could take the scenic railroad up to the Elk Creek stop, hike the 9 miles up to the CDT, and head south.
Sorry, we shut it down up here in the Summer.

Is the lodge open or manned after April?
Hikers on the Continental Divide Trail would dearly love to have a place to send resupply boxes, which could be held for a fee. It would save us the long hitch into Pagosa Springs or South Fork.
