Pumpkins and powder in Colorado - Wolf Creek opens Oct. 19!

October 18, 2013

October snow in ColoradoIt may only be October, but skiers and snowboarders are already enjoying fresh powder in Colorado.

A series of early season storms during the first half of the month have dropped up to 18 inches of snow across most of the state's mountains, with the biggest totals along the northern Front Range, where backcountry skiers are already enjoying early winter conditions at Cameron Pass, and in the San Juans, where snowy Wolf Creek plans to open this Saturday (Oct. 19) after recent storms dropped nearly two feet of snow!

The winter-like weather bodes well for early season skiing at Copper Mountain. The resort could just be able to open with some "bonus" terrain if the pattern persists through the scheduled Nov. 1 opening day.

In the Summit County area, Arapahoe Basin reported 5 inches in the past 24 hours, and Loveland saw 8.5 inches of new snow. A-Basin has opened a second trail and is working hard to open the top half of the mountain with a combination of snowmaking and natural snow.
