If it is like last year, Keystone will encourage you to stay on the upper mountain until your last run, then either follow a narrow path and maybe walk to the base or download. Hopefully the additional snow yesterday and today will make this discussion irrelevant!
where are you seeing 20+ for Wolf Creek they are reporting 12in in the last 24hrs
We did finally get some really tiny intermittent snow flakes early this morning. Maybe there was more overnight but nothing on the ground at all. I've never been this late into the season without at least a dusting on the grass. Lower elevation places around Denver got a dusting.
@NayBreak did you get snow?
I think the discrepancy is that Joel is using a snotel site across the valley and at a higher elevation, while Wolf's snow stake is at an elevation below the base lodge (for some weird reason).
What passed through last night was a high snowline storm, so I assume Wolf is measuring at their stake while snowfall amounts higher up are much more generous.
Looking at their base area, I don't see 20" of snow. I'm watching them on the webcam shoving snow up from the ticket office area to build lift mazes.
Looking forward to tomorrow, when Wolf will offer the first ungroomed lift-served skiing of the season. :)
I ordered one of those Loveland cards - seems like a nice balance for someone who plans to ski Loveland at least once, but might not finish up a 4-pack. Too bad I didn't hear about it in time to use it last weekend =/
Tomorrow Wolf will spin 4 lifts and open 640 acres of terrain.
