The Wolf Creek ski area in southwest Colorado plans to open for the season Wednesday after reporting 20 inches of snow from a recent storm.
Wolf Creek was reporting an 18-inch base at mid-mountain as of Monday.
Winter Park Resort also plans to start its season Wednesday, and Eldora Mountain Resort is scheduled to open Friday.
Resorts have been welcoming snow after going through a drier-than-normal season in much of the state last winter.

The Climate Prediction Center's last U.S. Drought Outlook said drought is likely to persist over the next few months.
