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.
It's not clear what this season will look like. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Climate Prediction Center said in October that the odds favor warmer-than-average temperatures across Colorado from now until January.
The Climate Prediction Center's last U.S. Drought Outlook said drought is likely to persist over the next few months.
