Snow overview for USA
Monday 24 November 2014

Excellent early season conditions were seen this weekend across the USA and some resorts were reporting huge snowfalls on Monday morning, 24th November.

The most snow is falling in Utah, with the linked resorts of Alta (99cm) and Snowbird (99cm) reporting 56cm and 46cm of fresh snow respectively. Park City (74cm) has not missed out either and has seen 28cm of dry powder fall in the second half of the weekend. The skies are forecast to clear by Tuesday 25th November, providing incredible skiing conditions for this time of year.

Colorado is also reporting lots of fresh snow to start the week. Aspen (33cm) and Vail (56cm) both opened this weekend with good on-piste conditions. New snow fell at both resorts on Sunday 23rd and another 20cm could fall at Aspen by Wednesday 26th, improving conditions further.

Both Heavenly (46cm) and Mammoth (36/46cm) are now open for the season although skiing is limited at both to a few slopes covered by artificial snow.

Last week’s new snow on the east coast provided excellent opening weekend skiing at Stowe (13/91cm) and Mount Snow (41/46cm). Unfortunately warmer weather has brought rain to all of our featured east coast resorts on Monday, but colder weather is forecast to return by Tuesday. 

Most of our featured resorts, including Jackson Hole, Snowbasin and Telluride are scheduled to open this coming weekend.

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.
