UPDATE: Wolf Creek, Powderhorn to open Wednesday after weekend storm
Southern Colorado ski area Wolf Creek boasts of having "the most snow in Colorado," and it may be right once again this season.
The ski area near South Fork received 20 inches of snow over the weekend and announced plans to open for the season Wednesday. The area makes little snow so opening day is always dependent on the weather.
Wolf Creek, about a four-hour drive from Colorado Springs, will be open with four chair lifts running - Treasure, Bonanza, Nova and the Magic Carpet (Wolf Pup). Lift tickets are being sold at the early-season price of $35 for adults and $20 for children and seniors.
There will be beginner and intermediate trails open and expert terrain including Treasure Falls, Prospector Ridge, Boundary Bowl, parts of Alberta Peak and Montezuma Bowl. The Raven Lift will open Saturday.
