TODAY through SUNDAY - THE most uneventful week of the season... Strong high pressure ridging aloft holds across the western US, with relatively warm weather and dry air under mostly sunny skies, now through Sunday. The next chance for snow moves in possibly early next week, storms may pass through all next week, and it will be needed by then. CM

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) -
(Updated 08Feb2016) - Next week looks busy with snow storms, later Monday (15th) through that weekend (5+ days of frequent snow), as an unsettled pattern sets up again. More details are coming.

Winter into Spring - The El Nino SST pattern is strong, right now, and it looks like we will see a VERY strong El Nino continue for the rest of this winter. This set-up would usually cause heavier rain and snow across California (mainly southern and central, including Tahoe (Tahoe is already seeing a better season than they have had in years) mainly after mid-January, including southern California ski resorts, as the epic 1997-1998 season can attest to) and the southwest US this winter. This would be a vast improvement for Tahoe-Mammoth. Southwest Colorado and northern New Mexico usually do well, including Taos Ski Valley, who had a great season in 2014-2015 with the weak El Nino(ish) anomaly. Aspen is in between, and we would say average snowfall should be expected at Aspen-Snowmass in 2015-2016, which would make for a good year. 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.
