After receiving 8 inches of snow Thursday night, Wolf Creek opened 90 percent of its terrain. Snow is back in Colorado, and just in time for the start of holiday vacation.

Although the highest snow totals are expected to be in the northern mountains, the Interstate 70 corridor won’t miss out on the pow. Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin, Vail and Beaver Creek are predicted to see 10 inches of snow through Saturday, with another 4 to 6 inches on the way before Christmas, OpenSnow reported.

Fair warning: The holidays are one of Summit County’s busiest times of years, with visitors heading to the mountains from across Colorado and the country. Be prepared for I-70 traffic and longer lift line wait times.
