The heavy snowfall across Europe will sadly not be seen in the USA (with the exception being Timberline where well over half a metre of snow will fall). However, in its place there will be lots of sun on offer in many areas. Decent snow coverage can be found at most resorts, meaning that you will find great sunny weather skiing conditions at many resorts this week.
Utah experienced good amounts of snowfall last week and over the weekend and conditions are currently fairly good for the time of year. Snowbird and Alta will see some of the heavier snowfalls in the USA this week, with 18cm and 17cm respectively. Park City now has 16 lifts open and should be an excellent choice for skiing this week after snowfall on Sunday.
The snow fell almost constantly in the Sierra Nevada mountains in California last week and the snowfall continued over the weekend. Almost a metre and a half of snow fell in some areas. There will be far less snowfall this week but with good base depths of snow already in the area, it should be an excellent week for skiing.
Little snow is forecast in Colorado this week, but great skiing is on offer here due to the extra altitude and the snowfall from earlier in the season. Breckenridge in particular will offer some fantastic conditions this week. To the north Jackson Hole will only get 8cm of fresh snow over the next 6 days but 8 lifts are now open after a significant amount of snow on Sunday.
Over on the east coast many resorts have good skiing on offer. Killington is perhaps the pick of the bunch – 7 lifts are already open and the 20cm of snow that is forecast to fall this week should increase this number. Rain is unfortunately forecast to fall on Tuesday but temperatures will drop significantly towards the latter part of the week potentially bringing some icy conditions.
