In case you missed it last week, the underrated Wolf Creek (often receiving the most snow in Colorado by far) was the first resort to open the Colorado season. This comes ahead of the usual “race to open” by Arapahoe Basin and Loveland in Summit County. Worth noting that last season Wolf Creek wasn’t able […]
