Snow overview for USA
The great early-season conditions continue across the USA, with most resorts open in time for the ever-popular Thanksgiving Holidays.
Every one of our featured resorts in Colorado was open for the season on Thursday (the first time that this has been the case the season). For the best snow hit Arapahoe Basin (66cm) and Loveland (74cm) as the extra altitude has preserved the snow the best during the past week as temperatures rose slightly above average. That being said, a few centimetres of fresh snow were picked up on Thursday morning at many of our featured resorts, including Vail (56cm) where over 1250 acres of skiing was open. Nearby Winter Park (56cm) took the claim of having the most lifts open at seventeen, including the earliest ever opening of Mary Jane Mountain.
Across in Utah, Thursday’s snow was somewhat heavier and the linked resorts of Alta (56cm) and Snowbird (56cm) were the big winners having picked up 15cm of fresh snow. Snowbasin (51cm) and Solitude (56cm) also saw a decent fall of 10cm overnight, so expect a few decent powder stashes across the mountain on Thanksgiving Day.
Further north in the states of Wyoming and Montana, both of the major resorts opened up for the first time this season on Thursday. Big Sky (46/66cm) opened to 8cm of fresh snow and was spinning 4 lifts on the main mountain, providing access to some great groomed terrain and some nice off-piste powder stashes. Jackson Hole (45/71cm) also opened to fresh snow on Thursday to kick off its 50th season and with as much as 40cm of new snow forecast over the next five days things are looking great for the winter ahead!
Thursday was an amazing early-season powder day in California, with skiers and boarders able to enjoy up to 40cm of fresh powder at some resorts. One of these was Mammoth (56/107cm), which also had 15 lifts running – so there should be an excellent variety of fresh tracks on offer! Squaw Valley (61/71cm) did not miss out either, picking up 25cm on Wednesday, whilst nearby Heavenly (61cm) was also able to claim a Thanksgiving powder day following 20cm of new snow.
Most of our featured east coast resorts were open on Thursday to coincide with a spike in visitor numbers over the Thanksgiving holidays. Almost all of the snow on the ground was artificial and limited terrain was on offer at most resorts. For the best skiing head to Killington (10/31cm) where seven lifts were turning, or to Sunday River (30cm) where five lifts were spinning to access 13 groomed trails. Cold conditions are forecast for the weekend which is great news as snowmaking systems should be able to fire once again following a mild Thursday and Friday.
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.
