Well it seems as though the snow gods are not blessing us greatly right at the moment. According to the various snow reports this morning... Niseko seems OK....is it? Hakuba looks thin to say the least. Europe looks very ordinary. A smattering of skiable resorts about, mainly the larger ones. Switzerland is a write off, Italy very marginal, Germany has very little. Chamonix is not looking good. You can ski bit you have to pick it. US - East coast is average at best, ditto up into eastern Canada. Washington state looks pretty good, California appears steady with reasonable falls, Utah mainly but can be marginal (Alta/Snowbird average to good, while just down the road Sundance is pretty low on snow). Wyoming/Montana look average to good. Colorado...average at best. BC/Alberta - not bad, not great. Certainly skiable but not an outstanding season to date. Alaska - Alyeska...alright but not worth a hike is my guess. Looks like you have to be pretty selective or lucky at the moment. Of course the snow reports don't reflect real skiing potential and often it is better on the ground than the reports suggest, however does anyone have on-ground info currently? (And not the...."we're expecting a big dump from Manchuria/the Pacific/the Arctic/over the Alps (pick any)" type "observations"!). Off to sacrifice a chicken to the snow gods now.
