North American Weather Outlook

The resorts we report on in Andorra have now closed for the 2007/8 season.


The best time to ski in Austria is early in the morning before the strength of the sun and the mild temperatures cause the cover to become heavy.


The resorts we report on in Bulgaria have now closed for the 2007/8 season.


There are now only two of the resorts we reports on in Canada open but there is excellent spring riding on offer at both this week.


More bright and sunny weather enhances conditions at Les Deux Alpes (80cm) and Tignes (40cm) this week. The snow quickly softens due to the strength of the sun so it is best to ski early in the morning before the snow becomes wet and heavy.


The skiing on the upper pistes at Garmisch (0/405cm) and Oberstdorf (0/300cm) is still really good thanks to the excellent base depth and low temperatures.


No fresh snow was reported at Cervinia (95cm) last weekend, but Val Senales (40cm) did receive a dusting on Sunday.


On Monday the only skiing in Scotland is at Cairngorm (20/85cm). Snow is falling on Monday morning but the temperatures are forecast to rise on Tuesday bringing rain. The best conditions are on the upper pistes as lower down the cover is patchy.


Hemsedal (115/174cm) and Trysil (0/140cm) in Norway are the only resorts which are still open out of the ones we report on. There is a chance of snow at both resorts later on Monday but this will not remain for the rest of the week as mild temperatures are set to bring rain.


The piste depths have reduced a little at Saas Fee (168cm) since last week but the summer riding is still excellent. The terrain park is open and riders can hit the halfpipe, rails and kickers. There are also four pistes open on Thursday.


Skiing in the States is represented by a small number of open resorts this week but the conditions have improved with light snowfalls over the weekend in Colorado.
