Mentioning the term ‘La Niña’ around the Wolf Creek diehards today is a risky bet after the resort closed on Sunday with no hopes of opening on the weekends this month.
A meager Wolf Creek snowpack will go down as one of the worst for the ski area that averages the most snow in Colorado with an annual average of 480″. This year, the ski area saw just 227″ of snow. Last year, they saw approximately 430″.
Other ski areas that closed over the weekend include Ski Granby outside Winter Park and Sunlight near Glenwood Springs. This weekend will see Buttermilk, Highlands, Crested Butte, Monarch, Silverton, Cooper, and Telluride shut down their lifts.
