Posted on 10/09/2011 11:59:40 AM PDT by george76
Wolf Creek is in southwestern Colorado on U.S. Highway 160 about 250 miles from Denver.
Operators had previously planned to open November 4, but the storm that blew Wednesday and Thursday changed all that.
Wolf Creek says it has 36" of snow and it plans to operate three lifts and offer 600 acres of skiing
The storm allowed Front Range ski resorts including Copper Mountain, Loveland and Arapahoe Basin to fire up their snowmaking equipment.

Must be that “global warming” again.
Got snow here at 8500 ft elevation NW of Golden. Lots of accidents yesterday with people driving too fast coming up in elevation and hitting the rain/snow transition. I can see the slopes at Eldora Mountain Resort ski area and they have snow, but probably not enough to cover all the rocks. Had to snow shovel an area on the deck for the smoker grill. Got the NASCAR race on and BBQ chicken on the grill.
Snowed here yesterday..................Farellones, Chile
79 degrees today up here on the frozen tundra about 60 miles west of Green Bay.
According to Joe Bastardi, we're going to have a rough winter ahead of us..........
Snow on the mountain north of here (Colville, Wa)
Fall/winter can’t come soon enough!
“Got snow here at 8500 ft elevation NW of Golden.”
We got rain, rain, rain down here in Longmont. I got up this morning and saw the snow on the peaks. Beautiful.
God bless the democrat/socialist man made global warming.
Every winter, the ski season starts earlier and ends later.
I have been to Santiago and Portillo in Chile.
It came early this year and we sure needed it up here in the mountains!!
Winter wonderland ping.
Be sure to put some Icy-Hot on that tonight.
Stayed at the Dakota Ridge R.V. park last week as the wife and I drove around the scenic byways of N.E Colorado.
Male and female moose were sitting in downtown Estes park in the middle of the day eating realll green grass.
Route 14 was spectaculor.
Glad to be back in Florida even with the rain/
I have it and I use it.......religiously.
