    I was there for the big storm last week and if you didn't have on fat skis you weren't going anywhere. I was on 118s and just had enough float. Wolf Creek is one mountain where you can say "too much snow" without feeling too silly because it happens. It is definitely one of those mountains that you need to know your way around or you can waste a lot of time stuck or in flats. Alberta is basically in bounds backcountry skiing which can be incredible but also the type of place where you do a run and end up stuck in chest deep powder. Not an issue most mountains in CO have to worry about!

    Thank you for the comment. My experience makes more sense now. The Soul 7's are 108 underfoot I believe. My ego is in a better place now.

    Thanks much for the info. I regret not skiing Wolf Creek. It would have been ideal conditions when I was there. But I ran out of time. But I'm already planning for it next year. ogsmile
