Snow overview for USA
Thursday 28 April 2016

California has seen somewhat of a resurgence over the last couple of weeks, with heavy snow dramatically improving the fortunes of many resorts. Another 5cm of new snow on Wednesday has ensured that slopes remain in good condition ahead of the weekend. The sun is expected to shine over the coming days and into the early part of the weekend. Sunday will mark a change, however, with rain showers forecast throughout the day.

Excellent skiing is currently available across Utah, after 25cm of new snow fell over the course of the week. Slopes are thus in excellent condition ahead of the busy weekend period. Cloud is expected to hang around the region over much of the weekend, with the possibility of some light snowfall during this period.

On east coast, limited skiing is currently available, with the majority of our featured resorts suspending weekday lift operations. No new snow has fallen over the course of the week and many slopes are beginning to suffer, with spring conditions starting to take their toll. Sun will shine during the early part of the weekend, before rain showers move in over the course of Sunday.

Just returned from a week in Alta (over new year). Such an amazing resort. Snow was great and it snowed most nights meaning piste, and off piste conditions were superb. The hotels are all fine and the locals are the most friendly and helpful you will ever meet. Alta's skiing is linked to nearby Snowbirds meaning there is a huge ski area. People of any ability would be able to ski there for years and not get bored! I highly recommend Alta for superb hotels and fantastic skiing. Its a great place for any ability.
