Snow overview for USA
Thursday 29 January 2015

It has been a quiet week across western USA, with mild temperatures and mostly sunny skies dominating the weather patterns.

Some very good piste skiing is still on offer, especially on the upper slopes as lower down some softening followed by a refreeze has led to some packed conditions. A light dusting was picked up at Alta (163cm) and Snowbird (163cm) on Thursday morning and Snowbasin (132cm) caught a surprise 13cm overnight on Wednesday. The Ski Club Leader in Jackson Hole (195cm) reported 5cm of fresh snow on Wednesday, which with a strong wind led to some excellent windblown powder stashes on some favoured aspects.

California has finally seen some snowfall this week, although with a maximum of 10cm recorded at Squaw Valley (86cm) and 8cm at Heavenly (81cm), much more is needed for more terrain to open up. Unfortunately this does not appear to be forthcoming, at least in the next nine days.

The story could not be more different on the east coast, where winter storm Juno that dumped over half a metre on Boston, also dropped some good falls on the Appalachian resorts. Sunday River (76cm) caught the most, recording 45cm during the storm, resulting in some amazing powder conditions across the mountain. Killington (76cm) picked up 13cm and Sugarbush (183cm) added 15cm to its excellent base depth. Some more snow can be expected in the coming days, improving snow conditions even further.

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.
