Wolf Creek Ski Area announced it will be opening this weekend, Saturday, Oct. 16, after 14 inches of fresh snow was dumped on the mountain this week.

According to its website, “Wolf Creek will open the Nova Lift and Lynx Lift from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.”

The lifts will also be open on Sunday, Oct. 17. 

The website notes that grooming is taking place and staff is evaluating terrain for Bonanza and Treasure lifts.
