    theres more moisture headed here this week. If Wolf creek gets it too (very likely) then it's actually going to start getting pretty good.

Never-opened-earlier-than-Thanksgiving is gonna steal the show this year. People saying "they're only blowing out the mice- this isn't real!" as a webcam shows maximum snowmaking production. Skiers who "brag" about how they don't go out til after MLK weekend because the conditions suck anytime beforehand. The "armchair meteorologists" coming out and making crazy claims about how the temperature at the summit is gonna be 15 degrees cooler than what NOAA forecasts...just a lovely time to be on the forums

    Well there certainly won't be any historically early openings this year. Just no cold air to speak of. Usually Sunday River has done a teaser on a 35 degree day by now but not this year. But at least the ponds are full, that's for sure

    Anyways...not to tease without any information...

    This is the NOAA temperature outlook map for October 6-19. It's old, last updated Spetember 21. This is not severity, just a % chance that the temperature will be above or below normal.

    It's worth noting that NEXT weekend, the 6-8th, the European, GFS, and Canadian all have some type of cold front coming through! Just something to watch and get the juices flowing again! We'll be skiing sooner than later people!
    Wolf Creek for the national win opening on October 13th.

    We were able to get it! While I wanted to go my wife lead the charge and we made the 3 hour 45 minute drive there and back to ski about 5 hours. This opening day was different than any other. It was all natural after 30 inches of snow they opened with wide open skiing any where you want - no ropes. There were nice powder runs early then powder bumps. They groomed several runs which were nice all day. While powder in open spaces got thick when the Colorado sun hit it with temps in the high 30's, the trees remained soft. It was the best first day ever.

    No lines, no WROD and powder, bumps, trees as well as lots of groomers in play.20181013_133115.jpg20181013_120204.jpg20181013_105541.jpg20181013_105432.jpg20181013_105104.jpg

    We made it and it was not a WROD type of opening. Read my other post.
