Snow overview for USA
Thursday 25 May 2017

Whistler, British Columbia, Canada, is currently closed as the team at the resort begin work shifting some of the remaining snow base to facilitate summer activities. The resort is due to partially reopen for skiing again on the 10th June.

Over on the west coast of the USA in Oregon, the base depth at Timberline (424cm) has been on a steady decline over the past couple of weeks. Temperatures at mid mountain level were at around +5C on Thursday 25th May, which is considerably lower than it has been this week. For those heading up, the resort has typically been running three lifts on a daily basis, and there has been some lovely corduroy snow early on in the morning which churns up as the day goes on.

Blue Sky Powder
Overall rating: 5 stars

Visited: March 2013

In Vail Sunday 17th march for wk. Tons of powder on Sunday , Monday , Thursday , Friday and Saturday .Off piste in Blue Sky Basin especially but also elsewhere was amazing . The glades are beautiful , the cat trails thru the forest exciting , the moguls are challenging and the sense of travel similar to resorts like courcheval. The Americans are super friendly . What's interesting is that even with skiclub reports and Colorado reports and daily IPad checks you would not have had realistic idea of skiing conditions! And comparing base levels in surrounding colorado resorts is not always helpful ie. Vail was showing 107cm, Beaver Creek 137cm ,I visited them on alternate days, both without snowfall, Vail was excellent , Beaver Creek icy and dreadful ! What maybe true is that when resorts do get snow, some immediately blossom- -- Vail is one of those resorts . I think a top 5 world resort! I have visited over 60 in the last 15 years. Hope this report helps those trying to plan their ski trips.
