Wolf Creek is only reporting 8" in the last 24 hours (16" storm total) so far as of this morning on their Web page. It is still supposed to snow through Tuesday. Hopefully there will be some reports from the mountain today. It is snowing pretty well here in Durango now. Wolf and Purg will be packed this weekend. I still think Monday will be the big day.
Wolf Creek was a madhouse today. We got there at 9:30 and parked in the last few rows of the Tranquility lot (the very bottom lot before you have to park a mile down at the snowshed).
I expect Snowshed filled by 10:00. I rode a lift with a ton of Denver, Aspen, Summit locals, and even some guys that had storm chased from LA! Apparently there was a nightly news piece about how Wolf Creek was the place to go this weekend, or so I heard. Apparently this storm reached the levels of hype where LA has nothing better to do than report on 4 corners weather.
As for the snow? There was about 2' of snow on the ground through most of Alberta, and it was blower. It was also hit HARD by the Hordes- 10:00 felt more like 3:00 on a merely busy day.
Was it bad? Not at all, but last weekend was about 10x better in the untracked department- I skied very little today that didn't already have lines through it. One of my first runs was into Waterfall along one of the more lightly used gates and I ran into a chute already scraped to rock by a "helpful" snowboarder coming down sideways- 55" in a week, and we could still manage to push it all off- impressive.
I don't know if this storm has officially busted or not. We got about 4" during the ski day. It snowed all day, just not very heavy. Maybe the big dump is still coming?
In any case, day 1 of this "Epic" storm doesn't rank in my top 20 days down here, maybe not even my top 50.
