Default Wolf 12/30 (yep....wolf)

Weather was shaping up for a great sunday with plenty of fresh snow so I decided to roll the dice and hit wolf. Despite only four runs open on the report I assumed they'd open more during the day or I'd get some good poaching in at the very least. Pulled in the lot, not crowded and a decent amount of snow.


Took a few runs and there were a few nice stashes to be found (along with plenty of death cookies as well).


Here's a lift shot showing how much natural snow they got.


All in all a nice day. Found a few powder turns before the day was over. They had a park open later in the day with a 10' flat bar, courigated pipe, some sort of short useless box and a rainbow rail. None of them were set properly, take offs were built poorly, no landings, BUT I commend them for trying this early in the season.
Another big gripe I have with Wolf from this visit...seeing as how I'd gambled they'd open to the top at some point during the day I asked around and no one seemed to think it would happen early on, but after checking their facebook page during a trip to the lodge I noticed a post that said we're open to the top! So I go out, jump on the lift...that wasn't the case. I snapped a photo and posted on their page to show that the posting wasn't accurate. To be fair they did open the upper runs several hours later, but seeing as how I already have some trust issues with the place I felt the need to call them out.

Nice report on da Wolf.... down the road at CAT it was packed, amazing what good management can do. Wolf needs an undercover boss intervention.

I was hoping I could duck the crowd by going to Wolf, turns out I was right. Still prefer Cat, but you know...
