Snow overview for USA
Thursday 11 February 2016

It was a beautiful day across much of Utah and Colorado on Thursday 11th February, with the sun shining across many of our featured resorts. Despite a lack of recent snowfall conditions across the region remain excellent, with good skiing still available throughout many resorts. Temperatures have been relatively mild of late, however, they are likely to drop below freezing once more over the course of the weekend.

The sun continues to shine across California, with spring-like conditions across many of our featured resorts due to rising temperatures. Conditions both on and off the piste in Squaw Valley (165/305cm) and Heavenly (210cm) are soft across the entire mountain, particularly during the afternoon. Such conditions look likely to continue over much of the week ahead, with temperatures to remain mild and the sun to continue shining.

On the east coast conditions are continuing to improve thanks to low temperatures and light snowfall during the week. The best of the conditions can currently be found in Sugarbush (25/81cm) after 23cm of fresh snow fell in resort over Wednesday night. Plenty more snow is forecast across the region over the week ahead. Temperatures are set to remain bitterly cold, with lows of -26C expected over the 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.
