Snow overview for USA
Tuesday 22 April 2014

Many American resorts closed on Monday 21st April after the Easter period passed. A handful of resorts remain open in Colorado, including Breckenridge (218cm). They’ve still got loads of snow and on Tuesday 22nd April they were running 13 of their 32 lifts. This is expected to be the final week of their season before closing before closing this weekend.

Mammoth (89/165cm) in California is still open too. It’s been a dry season for them but they’ve got good snow on their runs. They plan to stay open until the last weekend in May so there’s still another month to enjoy the skiing on offer at Mammoth.

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.
