Snow overview for USA
Thursday 26 March 2015

Utah saw lovely sunny skies and warm temperatures on Thursday 26th March, providing the perfect conditions to enjoy the new snow from this week. Some great conditions are to be found in both of the Cottonwood Canyons, with Snowbird (193cm) and Park City (145cm) at either end of the area reporting some fantastic skiing. Expect the strong spring sunshine to soften the lower slopes – leading to some great spring skiing conditions.

New snow was recorded across Colorado on Thursday, adding to the snowfall from earlier this week, taking totals to between 20 and 40cm for most resorts. 10cm was picked up quite widely at resorts such as Arapahoe Basin (127cm), Breckenridge (175cm) and Copper Mountain (170cm). The sun returned on Thursday and should continue throughout the weekend providing perfect conditions in which to enjoy the new snow.

Both Jackson Hole (180/218cm) and Big Sky (119/178cm) further north are in incredible condition for the time of year. Big Sky has seen 48cm of powder since Tuesday and Jackson Hole caught 30cm and some great powder turns have been reported from both resorts. Expect some great sunny weather this weekend, before yet more cold and snowy weather next week.

California continues to struggle as very mild and sunny weather further eats away at the limited snowpack. With mid-mountain temperatures set to reach as high as +10C at resorts such as Heavenly (99cm) then the snow is set to melt further. More sunny and warm weather is expected over the coming nine days.

Mild and cloudy weather was in place across the eastern states of the USA, bringing the chance of some light rain to our featured resorts. Base depths are still excellent at resorts such as Killington (76/102cm) and Sunday River (102/102cm) and the mild temperatures have resulted in some nice soft piste conditions. The weekend is set to be gloriously sunny before the clouds roll in again next week and bring up to 10cm of fresh snow by Wednesday.

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.
