    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.Attachment 24068Attachment 24069Attachment 24070Attachment 24071Attachment 24072

    Sweet Dave, Wolf Creek is awesome, reminded me of a mini Abasin. Full of vacationing Texans when I was there. I couldn't believe they traveled that far. I felt like Bode Miller that day, lol.

    Here's what we spotted hiking Hunter's fire tower yesterday. I had my AC on last week. It won't be long, K will be open soon.

    Have not heard anything from the River, but K is looking to run as much as possible from tonight to Friday. Some nice wet bulb in the forecast for Thursday, esp this time of year.

    Hum, not much of a window tonight. Maybe they just want to cool the ground down

    Wednesday night-Friday am looks ok. And again stating Saturday night with real time cold even at base elevations by Monday morning.

    Someone opens next week. Can the beast pull off this weekend????

    Seems like you're on the right track. I already called it this morning. I've been eyeing this for a while now. It's hard to ignore the cold coming next week to put us over the top. I've already started making arrangements.
