I was in Denver last weekend for RubyConf so I hit up A-basin on Friday and Loveland on Sunday. The lines were bad, but not terrible. Interestingly Loveland had about twice the snowfall just on the other side of the pass.
Since I'm in Santa Fe I'm only 3 hours from Wolf Creek. They got 8" Wednesday to freshen things up, unfortunately I couldn't make it today, but I'll be heading up Sunday. It's worth noting that A-basin and Loveland have a couple of runs, maybe 50 acres each, whereas Wolf Creek is 25% open with 400 acres. It's gonna be great.
