Snow overview for USA
Monday 24 April 2017

Many resorts, particularly around Colorado and Vermont, are now closed for the winter season. However, great skiing can still be found in the USA, where the season continues for the likes of Timberline (457cm) who received further fresh snow over the weekend.

Elsewhere, conditions are looking good in Utah at Snowbird (315cm) at the moment, where slopes are holding well and 7/11 lifts were still spinning on Monday.

Any resorts in Colorado that are still open can be hopeful of fresh snow this week. Loveland (155cm) in particular is forecasting around 100cm this week.

Loveland review
Malcolm Turner

Loveland has several distinctions: the first is its very long season from October to June, and the second is its proximity to Denver (about a 90 minute drive from Denver Airport). It’s nearly 12,000 feet high and this year it was the first Colorado resort to open (the nearby resort of Arapahoe opened a few days later). It is also good value for money with an early season day pass costing $46.00, compared to nearly $100.00 per day at some of the larger resorts.

This year they managed to open in early October following unusually cold weather. I skied there for six days (from 27th October to 1st November) and found the resort to be excellent. The biggest October storm to hit Colorado for 12 years arrived during my stay producing huge quantities of fresh snow. It also, however, produced very low temperatures and a lot of wind. I understand that Loveland is known for its wind, which might be a negative. I was so cold I had to buy extra clothing, but the superb powder snow made it worthwhile. There were seven runs and two lifts open, and it was a joy to hear fresh powder creaking under my skis. For three days it snowed so hard that our tracks were covered in minutes, meaning that nearly every run was over fresh powder.

Like most American resorts it is well run. It’s just off the I70 Interstate Freeway, you park next to the lift (there are even parking attendants to make sure you park in the right place), and good management means there are rarely queues (weekends can be an exception). Facilities are good and the staff are friendly and helpful.

I had an extraordinary experience one afternoon. A young skier in the restaurant suddenly keeled over, apparently from a heart attack. The Ski Patrol was soon working on him. He had no pulse and was not breathing; they spent about twenty minutes giving him CPR, and finally used a defibrillator. They actually restarted his heart and when I left he was sitting up and talking! Incredible, how often do you see someone brought back from the dead? Are ski patrols this well-trained and equipped in Europe? I wonder.

There is no accommodation in the resort. I stayed at the Hotel Chateau Chamonix in nearby Georgetown (11 miles away). It was excellent and I strongly recommend it. Georgetown is a former gold mining town which has been beautifully restored and developed as a tourist resort. Very friendly and worth seeing.
