Short Range Forecast Discussion

Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Wednesday, July 01, 2015
A very persistent upper-level high pressure ridge is sitting over over the intermountain west, leaving Colorado under a northwest flow aloft, and most daily thunderstorm and shower activity to the south and east of Aspen. This changes a bit on Thursday, with an increase in T-storms, otherwise mostly sunny skies and above average temperatures continue all week. By Sunday and Monday we could see an upswing in thunderstorm activity as low pressure moving across southern Canada sends a cold front down south along the front ranges, and this may help focus extra energy and moisture across Colorado, for resultant thunderstorms and showers. Temperatures should drop off a bit due to this. CM

Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - We plan to bring this back in the fall, unless we receive interest in firing the longer range forecast back up, sooner.

It looks like a strong El Nino will be in effect this fall and winter, and is already present now. This would usually cause heavier rain and snow across California and the southwest US (winter). We will be monitoring the progress of this right here, stay tuned... CM

Wolf Creek operates on 1,600 acres spread along a high alpine ridge in the Rio Grande National Forest, under a U.S. Forest Service permit and administration. The uniqueness of Wolf Creek lies in the 1,000 acres between Horseshoe Bowl and the Water Fall area, which is called the Alberta Lift area. This wilderness provides everything from challenging double black diamond runs of the Knife Ridge chutes to a variety of intermediate terrain where navigation skills are called into action. Groomed runs are also a part of the scheme complimenting the excitement and challenge of the Alberta Lift area. The traditional trails are the main core of Wolf Creek with 6 lifts servicing 500 acres of terrain all leading into the base area facilities. Wolf Creek Ski Area is one of Colorado's oldest and finest ski resorts that receives an average annual snowfall of 465 natural inches, the most snow in Colorado! Their trademark is friendly employees and abundant light powder. Wolf Creek is a high alpine ski resort, 10,300 ft at the base and 11,900 ft at the summit with 1,600 skiable acres. Wolf Creek offers a better ski experience at a very affordable price.
