Wolf Creek is definitely my favorite all-mountain/pow resort of all time. Vibe, lifts, food, prices, and terrain are all dope.
Silverton would probably end up being more expensive, it's more or less backcountry/sidecountry skiing with one lift. You need to own or rent full avy gear and have experience or pay for a guide, etc etc.
However, you would probably get to ski more pow at silverton.
