The Denver Channel reports Colorado is getting its first snow storm of the season, and it's enough for one ski resort to open.
Wolf Creek Ski Area opens today and tomorrow with more than 3 feet of snow; 3 lifts; $33.00 lift tickets! Seniors and Children will be $19.00. Treasure, Bonanza and Nova will be operating from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM servicing beginner, intermediate and expert terrain, including Alberta Face and Treasure Falls. Alberta Lift, Alberta Peak, Waterfall Area, Knife Ridge and Horseshoe Bowl are all closed.
Wolf Creek Ski Area is on Highway 160 between Pagosa Springs and South Fork. The ski area is about 250 miles from Denver.
This early opening is a record breaker for Wolf Creek, with the prior earliest opening being October 27, 2006.
Closer to Denver, Arapahoe Basin Ski Area and Loveland turned on their snow guns Thursday afternoon. Arapahoe Basin and Loveland typically open in October.
