Snow overview for USA
Monday 20 February 2017

Monday 20th February was broadly speaking a powder day in America. Very heavy snowfalls today across many of our featured American resorts, Squaw Valley (271/520cm) is expecting just under one metre today, Mammoth Mountain (477/889cm) forecast to receive another 75cm dump today also. Jackson Hole (231/342cm) is starting today with another 35cm of fresh after just over half a metre in the past few days. Elsewhere a number of resorts are reporting no less then 20cm in the past 24 hours. It’s yet another sensational report for the American ski fields.
In the forecast this week. Snow, lots of it and pretty well everywhere. It is going to be another stormy snowy week. Once again America is one of the best places on earth the ski and board.

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.
