There are now three ski areas open for business in Colorado after Wolf Creek joined the fray over the weekend with plans to reopen next weekend, Nov. 7-8.
Loveland Ski Area and Arapahoe Basin both opened on a daily basis last week, and Keystone is scheduled to open on Friday, Nov. 6.
“Until further notice [Wolf Creek] ski area will be open next weekend as well,” Wolf Creek operators reported on their website Monday. “More terrain will be opening as the mountain receives more snow.”
That could happen this week, with a slow-moving, cut-off storm swinging south and east into Colorado from Tuesday night all the way into Thursday, according to Opensnow.com.
That storm will favor southern ski areas like Wolf Creek with more precipitation. But it should still lower the balmy temperatures Colorado saw over the weekend and deposit a few inches in northern and central Colorado.
Then another storm swings in quickly from the northwest Friday into Saturday. That’s good news for the next wave of ski resorts planning to open, including Breckenridge and Copper Mountain on Friday, Nov. 13. Vail opens the following weekend on Friday, Nov. 20, followed by Beaver Creek on Wednesday, Nov. 25.
