Snow overview for USA
Monday 22 December 2014

It has been dumping across the USA this weekend, with powder conditions reported in most resorts in Utah, Colorado and Wyoming. California has missed out, as has the east coast, but good skiing is still to be found in these areas following good snowfalls last week.

As of Monday morning, 22nd December, Arapahoe Basin (94cm) had received the greatest amount of new snow, with 48cm of powder reported. Other snowy spots included Alta (137cm) which saw 36cm, Snowbird (127cm) that recorded 41cm and Loveland (89cm) that received 37cm. Excellent powder conditions will be found all week as temperatures should remain cold and more snow is predicted to fall.

Monday 22nd December dawned warm and windy across California, affecting lift operations and softening the pistes. Squaw Valley (114cm) had 20 lifts operational and Mammoth (70/122cm) had 21 lifts turning.

Over on the east coast some good skiing was available over the weekend and into the Christmas week. Sunday River (51cm) were running 10 lifts and Killington (40/60cm) had 13 lifts spinning.

The snow is forecast to continue during the Christmas week in Colorado and Utah, accompanied by cold temperatures. Up to a further 30-40cm is forecast, so conditions over Christmas should be epic. California should see a welcome drop of snow on Christmas Eve. On the east coast warmer weather is unfortunately due to spill in for Christmas, bringing with it some rainfall.

Aspen is renowned for it's rich and famous locals and visitors and its also busy with those wanting to be rich and famous. But if you don't fall into their habit of watching eachother, there are some very welcoming locals, a vibrant apres scene and world class skiing to have fun with.

Just above the village, Aspen mountain has wonderful, long runs for all abilities. As usual in the US, there's your share of 'groomers' each day mixed with bumps, off-piste and great tree runs. On a powder day, when everyone heads to Snowmass or Highlands, you'll have it all to yourself.

Snowmass is a 15 minute, free bus ride away and will suit all abilities. Ridges and tree runs abound. Highlands bowl is the steeper area, with great tree chutes and then the bowl to hike into and its famous 50 degree slopes. Well worth it when the lifties have the BBQ going at the bottom with free hot dogs!

In town, the J-bar, Little Annies and Zanes are fun. Or you can spend more on a drink and watch the Cougars in action in Little Nell's. Su Casa does great Marg's, Burrito's and all things Mexican for prices that seem more small town than glitzy Aspen.

Aspen is really worth a visit, especially as part of a road trip along the I-70, or combined with Crested Butte, Telluride or Silverton.
