    After receiving another nine inches of fresh snow, Wolf Creek Ski Area will open, with all six lifts operating for the 2013-2014 ski season.

    Beginning this Saturday, Nov. 9, Wolf Creek will be in full operation seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

    The Alberta, Raven and Magic Carpet lifts will be open for the first time this season.  The Treasure Stoke lift, Wolf Creek’s new high-speed detachable quad, has already been transporting skiers and snowboarders up the mountain along with the Bonanza and Nova lifts since Oct. 19, when Wolf Creek began operating during the weekends.

    Having received 47 inches so far this season and with a midway base depth of 29 inches, Wolf Creek lives up to the title of “Most Snow in Colorado.”

    Conditions are powder/packed powder with early season obstacles.

    Sunday is College Day, offering $38 lift tickets to full-time students with their valid college photo ID.

    Ski rental and the BoarderDome will be open, as well as Treasure Sports.  The Wolf Creek Lodge will be serving lunch with drinks available at the Pathfinder Bar, and the Base Camp will be open for those who prefer to pack their own lunch.  Ski school will be available for all ability levels including the Wolf Pups Program.
