Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Wolves coming back to Colorado?

There's a ballot measure for 3 November to reintroduce the Gray Wolf from 2023.

If it passes, please don't injure yourselves off-piste without company...

We've done this in Washington. The wolves do fine. Some ranchers lose some livestock and it all falls predictably left and right.

Some areas have compensation schemes for ranchers who lose stock to wolf predation, seems a sensible thing to do. https://www.wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/legislation-proposes-compensation-livestock-losses-due-wolves#stream/0

Off-piste doesn't exist in the same way as Europe in Colorado. If you mean back country/out of bounds you really shouldn't be there alone anyway due to avalanche risk. That all said, you probably have more chance in your plane crashing on the way out that being attacked by a wolf. Wolf attacks are extremely rare.

@Alastair Pink, it is sensible. We do that as well, and it is a surprisingly small amount of money.

Surprised this is only happening now. Wolves are back right across the alps, to the extent that farmers are beginning to demand compensation for losses (surprise!). We even had some in the forest around Starnberg, or at least one male was run over by a car a couple of years ago.

Not a surprise, and perfectly justified in my view. If a country decides that it wants to have wolves back in certain areas (a move which I would support) then those people who suffer a financial loss as a result should be reimbursed by a fair compensation scheme ( I would suggest market value of the predated animal plus say 20% to allow for the hassle of claiming).

Here in Washington (in 2018) we had 27 wolf packs which killed 11 head of cattle and one sheep, and injured 21 other animals. Total compensation paid to the ranchers was just under $14,000. More at wdfw.wa.gov.

Seems like an acceptable economic trade off for all the biodiversity that putting an apex predator back in the food chain encourages.

@Dave of the Marmottes, the effect of reintroducing wolves to Yellowstone has been quite dramatic.
