What’s going on in Colorado? The weather has been unseasonably warm for weeks.
In Vail, Colorado, they may have had 40cm of snow in the past week, but the temperature is going to be up to +10C every day for the whole of the coming five days. ARRRGGGGGHHHHH.
Just when we were beginning to get used to cold and snowy winters again, along comes a hot spell like this to set the alarm bells ringing.
It’s warm in Utah, too, though not quite as warm. In Snowbird the temperature should be up to around +6 or +7C in the sunshine this week. Currently the snowpack is about 2.5m deep, though expect that number to drop as the thaw continues.
For the best conditions in the American Rockies, you need to head north. In Jackson Hole in Wyoming, temperatures have stayed lower, and heavy snow is expected today, as the resort gets a share of the storms which have brought so many smiles to Canada. Mid-mountain, the snowpack is around 1.9m deep.
Finally, California’s epic winter is back on hold. In Mammoth the last snow was on March 5, and it’s getting pretty toasty in the sunshine. The snowpack is still very deep, however – around 3.5m on the lower slopes!
