USA - Alaska: latest snow conditions round-up


USA Another very snowy week in the US with some resorts in the west reporting another metre of snowfall and also consistently good coverage across almost all of the country - only the far northwest around Washington State continues to see things a little warmer than they'd like. Mt Baker, the world's snowiest resort on average, has had to delay its planned opening due to inadequate snow cover so far.

It's a similar picture up in Alaska where Eaglecrest Ski Area has postponed its opening day planned for last Saturday 1st December to next Saturday 8th December due to warm temperatures and a lack of natural snowfall there too. Unusually, in fact, Trollhaugen (30/183cm) in the Midwest continues to post the deepest base in the country Western resorts are catching up fast and, perhaps more importantly, are also building their resort level bases, with several passing the metre mark there - the first to do so in the northern hemisphere so far this season. Mammoth for example now has a 102/178cm base, the second deepest in the world while Brighton resort in Utah is posting 145/145cm after another 65cm in 72 hours earlier this week. Many other resorts in California, Colorado, Utah and Wyoming and posting similar impressive numbers for the start of December with many claiming this is the best start to the season in a decade or more and very different to a year ago. Conditions also remain good in the east and Midwest although the rate of snowfall has slowed down here and indeed the next few days are looking quieter across much of the country.
