Wolf Creek Ski Area was praying for that Thanksgiving storm that would bring an end to the unseasonable warm weather and start the 2016 – 2017 season in the Southern San Juan Mountains. Prayers were answered with a great high moisture content storm of 16 inches that blanketed the slopes on November 22nd, just in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
