First for Colorado's ski season: Wolf Creek Ski Area

An early October snowfall allowed Wolf Creek Ski Area in southern Colorado to be the first in the state to open for the 2011-12 ski season. Typically the ski area that gets the most snow, Wolf Creek never has been among the first to open. It's earliest opening was Oct. 27, 2006. But now it has set a record, opening on Oct. 8 with a 35-inch snow depth at the summit. It will stay open through Columbus Day, then re-open for the weekend of the 15th and 16th. Conditions will likely dictate if it will stay open for the rest of the month.

Submit a photo of yourself wearing Ski Goggles or Sport Sunglasses and the photo which gets the most “likes” wins with prizes also for 2nd and 3rd place.

    We are looking for creative pictures which feature stunning scenery in the background, action shots etc that will encourage people to like your entry.
