The legendary resort of Jackson Hole had around 199 centimeters at the top. It's cold and there's more snow in the forecast. The base is good, but the only drawback is the heavy winds.
The season couldn't start better in Whistler-Blackcomb. They already had 666 centimeters of snow at the highest peaks and it even snowed a lot in the village. The base couldn't be better and the conditions are all time. And the best thing is that there's even more snow in the forecast.
You'll find a good base at 'The Bird'. The resort that does welcome snowboarders in Little Cottonwood Canyon got 137 centimeters of snow at the peaks this season. The base is fine and there's more snow coming down the next couple of days.
