MESA COUNTY, Colo. (KKCO) This year has been one of the coldest and wettest we've ever had here in the grand valley but that may change.

According to the National Weather Service, we could be in for a warmer and drier than average winter this season bringing less snowfall to Western Colorado.

But Powderhorn Mountain Resort officials are keeping their hopes up.

"We want to get people out on the hill as soon as we can," says Powderhorn General Manager Sam Williams. "It gets to this time of the year and they're itching to get skiing and we want to get them out there and start sliding down the hill as soon as we can."

Even though forecasters are giving a 30% - 40% probability of the warmer and drier temperatures, they're quick to point out it isn't a sure thing.

And Powderhorn says no matter how good or bad this year's snowfall is, they'll be up and running like normal.
