wolf creek today.....
 
The boarding was great. Very very few rocks or trees to worry about. Really nice powder actually about 12 " to cruise in to start the day.

According to the press realease, it is the earliest they have EVER opened. Previous earliest was October 26, 2007. Lucky bastards in CO get to ride lifts already. Oh well, at least hiking season is getting ready to kick off out here in WA. I'll be out making turns soon.

you lucky BASTARDS! boarding already, wish my resorts were open:(

It was all types of terrain too. They had full coverage on runs and trees to there's a stupid amount of snow on the ground. I don't understand how they get so nuked like that. They could open the whole mtn except for some avy issues on the alberta side.

Probably the best crowd in terms of quality snowboarders and skiers as well as very chill laid back attitudes. Was a cool day.

:( were still 60 days out here.
If and a big if, I might take a 5 hour trek to the UP and they might be open early Nov at best..

It's coming, all I can do is wait.....

How is the actual terrain at wolf creek. Heard it was rather small compared to most CO resort but i bet the snow makes up for it!

Argo 10-08-2011 11:08 PM

Its a private mom and pop place. About 1700 acres and 1700 vertical feet. Half of it is black/double black type terrain too the other half is intermediate my family all learned to board there and have gone there the last 5 years till this year since we are in Vail now. The bunny slope is not a bunny slope... its a lift that takes you a third the way up the mountain and drops you off . Definitely not the 5500 acres and 4000 vertical feet of Vail but the snow there is always great.

I cant even begin to explain how stoked I am. Making the trip up from Taos to wolf creek this weekend. I'll report back on how it was. WOOOOOOOOOOOT FUCK YEAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I showed my roommate some photos of the snow they have at Wolf Creek (found some online) and he swore up and down that those photos just HAD to be from the middle of last season.

3 feet of snow during the ides of october is nuts. You guys might very well have a month and a half under your belt before most other resorts even open.
