The 2011-2012 season has kicked off. Wolf Creek was the first ski mountain to open this year, opening October 8th! Within 48 hours they had accumulated 50 inches of snow. This season so far has started out amazingly. With three resorts opening up in October, I personally can say that this season might be a season to remember. La Nina is really going to hit hard this year.
