Wolf Creek Ski Area is slated to open for the season on Friday, Nov. 4.
According to its website, “The snow storm of October 26th and 27th dropped an additional 8 inches to last Sunday’s 6 inches of wet snow. This gives Wolf Creek a natural settled base of 10 inches at midway.”
The ski area will be open Friday through Sunday with the Nova and Lynx beginner lifts open and the beginner trails Fox, Nova and Susan’s available for skiers and boarders, the website notes.
The lifts will be open from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., as well as the ski school and some amenities.
“Until Wolf Creek receives enough natural snowfall to open the upper mountain, the tentative schedule is Friday thru Sundays until Friday, November 18th when the ski area will open through Thanksgiving weekend. As usual, with more snow and winter conditions, more terrain and lifts will open – all detailed information will be updated on the website and 1-800-ski-wolf,” the website states.
The National Weather Service predicted Wolf Creek Pass would begin seeing additional accumulation Wednesday night, with the forecast outlining that 12 to 18 inches were possible that night.
The chance of snow continues today, Thursday, Nov. 3, with another 12 to 18 inches of new snow accumulation possible, according to the forecast.
The forecast suggests new snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches is possible Thursday night.
The chance of snow showers tapers off to 30 percent on Friday.
