    I just went to make a reservation for tomorrow and it looks like they are making you reserve 48 hours out now instead of shutting it down at 8pm then night before. I know yesterday and today were a shit show up there, but I'd love to hear from anyone who went today about how it was.

    Is there a rule of thumb for opening the t-bars? Like how many inches of base?

    I was at WC this weekend. Yep I bit on the forecast, but this season has been crap so why not.

    Line to pick up tickets was a mess with so many purchasing day tickets. If you weren't in line early you were waiting a while. On the drive up from South Fork, the camper lot looked full. Saturday it took them a while to open Alberta 9:45 (I think?) after about a two or three runs the lift line got pretty bad and we bailed to other lifts. Good amount of snow, but not great quality.

    Today seemed even crazier with lots maxed including the CDOT lot across the highway. Again we got two good runs on Alberta and bailed as the lift line wait just didn't seem worth it when we could ski on to others and still ski some nice snow. Today's snow was much fluffier.

    I'm sure this was an absolute shitshow for locals, but sadly as a front ranger this wasn't that bad.

    Next time I'll target a weekday, but for me still felt the trip this weekend was worth it. Nice to not be hitting rocks.

    Hopefully, weekends and seasons like this will help WC fund a future expansion into bigger terrain like they've been planning for years.

    My understanding is yes, but its also a pretty big gray area. Problem with a year like this is all that terrain is just facets and rocks, though patrol gets up there as soon as they can and does a ton of work. Ran into a troller buddy today that said he's already destroyed two sets of sticks this year.

    I laughed Micol, funny way to describe the scene.

    Not skiing stoke, but did poke around RMNP (Hidden Valley sledding is sick on a 3 base) and got a decent view of the East Troublesome aftermath. Tons of trails still closed; you can drive to the Cub Lake TH and get a close up look at where the fire tore through Moraine Park and the Big T headwaters

    If if bigger terrain means Wolf Creek will be a shit show all the time I hope Davey drops the idea.

    Front range bro here (no Sprinter, unfortunately).

    Wolf Creek was stellar all weekend, but this morning was the highlight. Skied all over the mountain yesterday and stuck with Alberta all day today. A couple 15 minute waits around mid-morning, but otherwise the line was fairly manageable. And we skied untracked snow basically all day (including on our last run at 2pm).

    Snow was still flying when we left and wind was ripping up top meaning that Alberta and Knife were refilling basically every lap. Tomorrow should be excellent.

    I don't think that would be the case with expanded terrain and added lifts.

    Yep, yesterday was the busiest day I've ever experienced at WC........at least off Alberta Chair. Certainly the product of powder-starved CO skiers and $58 lift tickets on a Sunday. Waited in a handful of 15 minute lift lines.....not too terrible, IMO. That said, I too was finding deep turns until I bailed at 2:45.....whooped. A great day, overall.

    I'm headed to Sheepshead Cabin back down that way for Thursday - Sunday.....looks like great timing for deep snow braaaping and skiing.

    I believe it's around ~45" base depth to open parts of the Headwall and main North Face, but goldenboy can certainly better answer that. There's a difference between a 45" settled base depth in December and that same depth in late January that's mostly facet snow.

    I actively monitor property in JH/Montana/Idaho/NE Wa. Been in Denver since 06, wife native... get me the f out! If it weren't for her family, we'd be raising our girls far away.

    Lobo lot provided quite a bit of entertainment in the form of 2wd sprinter vans! Did some laps early Saturday and came back to an absolute clusterfuck at the lot. We were trapped while a stuck sprinter van tried to figure out how to put chains on for the first time ever. Glad we didn't have anywhere to be.

    It's breathtaking and crushing how EXPONENTIALLY this kind of thing and these kind of people have just become an invasive species. In our neighborhood in the last 5-7 years, we've become surrounded on all sides by tech transplants from CA, NY & TX who constantly tell us what an absolute bargain front range real estate prices are. Ugggggg!
