Snow overview for USA
Thursday 23 February 2017

Thursday 23rd February was yet another powder day for the western states of America. Resorts in Colorado, Utah and California all reported staggering snow fall totals today. Powder conditions are in abundance, and there is more snow on the way. The only place conditions are not powder are on the east coast where spring conditions are offering soft forgiving snow all the same.

Temperatures in the west are very cold, producing light fluffy snow. Once again, it is very safe the say America has the best skiing int he world at present.

Visited: March 2014

Think the overview is a little out of date now. There is a large and typical US "Village" at the bottom of the slopes. Lots of accommodation, bars, shops and restaurants all in a pedestrianised setting surrounded by the mountains. Lots of skiing. Run back to the village a little soft in the afternoon, but stay high there is plenty of choice. Very different from a European ski holiday. Après ski If you want it in the Village, but not as extensive or noisy as most Alpine Resorts. Evening revolves more around restaurants, and a car is a necessity. Lake Tahoe is beautiful and the views of the lake reflecting the mountains are worth the visit alone.
