Huge Storm Closes Most of Wolf Creek Due to Avalanche Danger

Wolf Creek reports 51" in the last 72 hours and has the following at their main site:

CDOT IS CONDUCTING AVALANCHE CONTROL WORK ON THE WEST SIDE OF WOLF CREEK PASS TODAY DECEMBER 8TH. THEY DO NOT EXPECT THE ROAD TO RE-OPEN IN THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE. THE SKI AREA IS OPEN AND CAN BE ACCESSED FROM THE SOUTH FORK SIDE (EAST SIDE).

Their snow report lists the following:

Number of Lifts : 5; THE ALBERTA LIFT WILL BE CLOSED TODAY Water Fall Area : CLOSED DUE TO HIGH AVALANCHE RISK Alberta Peak Area : CLOSED DUE TO HIGH AVALANCHE RISK Knife Ridge : CLOSED DUE TO HIGH AVALANCHE RISK Horseshoe Bowl Area : CLOSED DUE TO HIGH AVALANCHE RISK

Tomorrow is Local Appreciation Day and lift tickets are $31 for adults. This is the sickest deal in the history of skiing. $31 for skiing a four plus foot dump? More snow coming today?
