The entirety of the Alps has been enjoying the beginning of an extended period of clear skies, warm weather and no new snow. Having begun on Wednesday of this week, and expecting to continue throughout much of half term, resorts will see conditions far more reminiscent of late season skiing as the mercury sits well above freeing and resort runs becoming heavily chopped over the course of the day.
By contrast, substantial snowfall has continued across much of North America, primarily falling south of the USA Canada Border. There has been little set up in the snow coming down in many resorts across Utah and Colorado, as well as in Mammoth and resorts based in and around Lake Tahoe.
Based on current weather forecasts for the next 9 days, the top three resorts for expected snowfall are:
Squaw Valley, USA, 135cm
Heavenly, USA, 80cm
Jackson Hole, USA, 80cm
