Snow overview for USA
Monday 14 April 2014

Last week’s brief blip of spring weather in Colorado is once again just a distant memory, after heavy snow fell at many resorts in the state. Skiers and boarders at Breckenridge (257cm) woke up to 38cm of fresh snow on Monday 14th April, which is one of the biggest dumps of their season so far. It was also very cold for the time of year with a temperature of -14C in the town.

Nearby Vail (188cm) received a load of fresh snow as well. Although not as much fell at Vail as at Breckenridge, a 23cm powder day in the middle of April is a big bonus and ensures their last week of the season will be a superb one.

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.
