Snow overview for USA
Monday 02 March 2015

It has been a very snowy weekend across Utah and Colorado, with the heaviest falls towards the south of Colorado. All of our featured resorts have picked up new snow, leading to some fantastic conditions all over the mountain. The snowiest spots include Telluride (190cm), with 68cm in the past two days, Crested Butte (155cm) with 55cm and Aspen (201cm) with 41cm.  Over the border in New Mexico, Taos (216cm) tops them all, having received 112cm in the past five days alone. The powder is great and more snow is in the forecast before the sun breaks through on Wednesday and remains in place throughout the week.

California finally saw a good drop of snow over the weekend, improving the ski conditions across the state. More is needed however as the base is well down on average, but the improvement is noticeable. Mammoth (107cm) and Heavenly (99cm) both saw 30cm of new snow over the weekend, but were topped by Squaw Valley (97cm) which recorded 80cm of new snow on the upper mountain. Sunny skies are now predicted for the week ahead with rising temperatures, so get out there as soon as possible to enjoy the new snow!

Again the east coast shivered this weekend, with the very cold air refusing to shift from the region. Some light falls of new snow were picked up on Monday morning, with resorts such as Killington (76cm) and Mount Snow (94cm) seeing between 3 and 8cm of fresh snow. The piste conditions across all resorts are fantastic and with the new snow landing, some fresh off piste turns can be found. The forecasts show no signs of the cold weather letting up, with mostly cloudy skies expected over the coming week, possibly accompanied by some light snowfall (up to 10cm).

Jackson Hole resort (the ski area) is about 10 miles from Jackson Hole (the town).
I didn't stay in the town, but rather at the foot of the Ski Lifts (called Teton Village).
Its a small resort, but for a week or 10 days has more than enough bars and restaurants to provide plenty of variety. As well as some well stocked ski shops.
There are about 50 (yes fifty!) public buses a day from Jackson Hole town to the ski area.
They run from very early in the morning, to late at night (approx 2300) and I think the fare is US$3 each way.
The skiing is excellent, not many lifts, but plenty of runs and very accessible off piste of all sizes and shapes. The two "best" (quickest to gain height) lifts are a cable car (called the "tram") taking you right to the top, and the Bridger Gondola which takes you about 2/3 of the way up the mountain. Apart from on Saturday, there were basically no lift queues the week I was there.
The whole area, not just the ski runs, is patrolled and avalanche cleared.
So you can feel pretty safe venturing off piste (at least in terms of avalanche risk).
The most interesting runs tend to be the black diamonds and the double black diamonds. Both can be quite steep, but the main distinction is that the double blacks tend to have at least one tricky section (often the very start of the run, or a narrow choke point in the run).
About half the skiing is tree skiing, the rest is in bowls or wide open areas.
There are only a few restaurants up the mountain, but they serve reasonably large portions, free water and toilets, and provide good value lunch and coffee breaks.
In the (Teton) village, you can find lots of bars and restaurants, most of which are associated with an hotel.
The locals (most of whom seem to ski amazingly well) tend to congregate at the Village Cafe. Spur is probably slightly more up market. Handlebar (part of Four Seasons hotel) has the easiest ski-in apres ski beers. The Alpenhof is next to the tram, below the gondola.
