Snow overview for USA
Thursday 30 March 2017

Varied conditions for the American ski fields today, Thursday 30th March. Conditions on piste remain good to excellent right around America as winter still holds its grip on many resorts. It may say spring on the calendar but you wouldn’t believe it looking at the ski resorts in Colorado. Today’s conditions were a light wintery mix of cloud and snow and some rain. Tomorrow is currently forecast to see very heavy snowfall in Colorado and Utah, light snow is expected in California. More generally around the U.S cloudy conditions will dominate the weekend.

The spring is here, although it seems the winter conditions will remain for at least another week.

Not a resort to be recommended. There was great snow this year and the views are spectacular but half the lifts were closed due to a light breeze - if Europe closed its lifts for that level of wind the resorts would all shut down. So big queues to get on the lifts and from California base it was three lifts to get to the top each with its own big queue.

Big queues to get the buses to the other bases as they closed the main gondola. And not enough buses to get people around - the person loading the buses when they came told me it was 2.5hrs after the lifts closed the previous day before they had got everyone away. And this was a weekday!

The resort is all about the money. Want to store your skis? That's $10 sir. Want to leave your boot bag at the base? That's $5 sir. A sign on the ticket windows says the lifts are your risk and if they are all closed there are no refunds. Basic hot-dog on the mountain is $15 and a drink $7.

For the skiing this year is good snow, the views are great but the runs are on the easy side. Blues are more like greens (or European blues) and there can be a lot of poling on flat bits because the lifts don't link up properly. Blacks are just runs with moguls on. Double blacks are steeper runs with moguls on. Nothing much around that is a technical black so unless moguls are your thing you are not going to find much challenging skiing.
