Hey man I was there this last weekend as well. I was going to make my own thread, but there is no need now. Your review is about exactly what I had to say. Ill just add my impressions onto your thread.

I rode wolf creek this weekend, ended up getting there around 9:30 am sat morning. I would actually call the conditions good, considering the date. The front 3 lifts all had fun conditions, the rocks and such were mostly covered if you were smart about it. There was a few slight pow/slush stashes that were lift accessible, but again the pow was very sticky because of the temperature. It was t-shirt riding weather, I had a hoodie on and it was still a little warm. Me and my buds hiked to Alberta peak as well, this is where we got in some fresh turns that was really fun. The main problem is after the hike we kept going and ended up on the backside. Due to the stickyness of the snow there was no possible way to ride the backside repeatedly without having to hike to the lift. After getting in some nice fresh turns coming down the peak, going to the backside was insanity. We were forced to jump several creeks, and dodge insane obstacles the whole way down. I had never ridden in such conditions, and actually had fun doing so, even though we actually had to hike to get to the bottom where the lift is.

Overall was a fun time, and a great warmup to start the season with, nice rollers to pop off of, a few random kickers to spin off, some bumps to practice on, and lots of choppy terrain to fly through. I'm, not sure if I would go next weekend or not, due to the temps and rapid melting of the snow I witnessed. But if I lived really close to it, I would probably be up there again to check it out.
