Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Tuesday, March 31, 2015 Today we see slightly increased moisture acted upon by daytime heating (mostly sunny), for afternoon thunderstorms and showers developing across mainly southwest Colorado, but some isolated thunderstorms mainly on upper mountain areas for Aspen-Snowmass and northern Colorado. On Wednesday moisture increases due to an approaching low pressure system, with some showers and afternoon showers/ thunderstorms (increased) and high snow levels, though the daytime looks partly cloudy and mild. On Thursday and Friday we see a shot of light to moderate snow for Colorado including Aspen, as low pressure moves in across Utah and into Colorado, favoring southwest slopes and the front range. Saturday and Sunday look dry and milder with a large and cold low pressure system developing across the Pacific Northwest and northern California with some much needed heavy snow out there. Due to this system, next week is looking like it may become a bit wintry. CM please see the detail in the long range forecast below.

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.
