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.

Great resort, great skiing

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.
