Snow Conditions in USA (23 April 2015)
Colorado is holding some of the best skiing conditions of anywhere in the world at present, with Winter Park (175cm), Arapahoe Basin (135cm) and Loveland (175cm) leading the way. Lots of new snow is forecast over the weekend and into next week, with over 50cm expected. Sadly Winter Park is due to close its doors to skiers on Sunday, but conditions at the other two are likely to be fantastic for the time of year with yet more powder turns available.
Snowbird (188cm) has been running four lifts all week, with spring conditions dominant across the mountain. Neighbouring Alta (188cm) is set to join it this weekend in what will be the final weekend or lift served turns this season in Utah.
Squaw Valley (45/78cm) and Mammoth (15/120cm) continue to offer limited snowsports in California, with the former certainly closing after Sunday’s skiing.
Over on the east coast, many resorts are now closed but skiing is still possible at Killington (76/102cm) and Sugarbush (25/114cm) however recent rain has reduced the available cover. Sunday River is set to open this weekend and will do so again, weather permitting on the 2nd/3rd May.
