January has been pretty epic in the western states of the USA, with powder days aplenty in what has been an incredible month for skiing or snowboarding.
Utah has arguably had the pick of the conditions, with Snowbird already seeing a remarkable 9m of snowfall so far this season thanks to yet another foot of new snow overnight into Monday. More snow and cold temperatures are expected until the end of the week – what a time to be in Utah!
It has also been a fantastic January in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where season snowfall totals have rocketed to over 7.5m already. Deep powder days have been had throughout the month and this week will be no exception. More snow is expected this week, along with cold temperatures which is great news.
Colorado has also had its fair share of snow and conditions are very good across the board. A light dusting is possible in the coming days and now the X Games are over, Aspen is a great bet for skiing this week as the slopes will be nice and quiet.
Across on the east coast, much needed snow fell last week to improve surface conditions. Cold and sunny weather is very much the order of the rest of this week, providing perfect overhead conditions in which to enjoy the groomed runs.
