I'm genuinely stunned. I would expect a far greater powder return than that! Shocked

We once went cat skiing near Silver Star (BC) and, on the trip, had a good chat with two local lads who had season passes for Silver Star. Incredibly, they said they had become spoiled - and refused to get out of bed to ski unless it was a powder day! Seemed like they got a lot more than 3 powder days per season...

Yeah but skiing fixed days - skiing weekends in a 13 week main season means 26 days so 3/26 = 11.5% chance of powder on a given day. Feels about right anything higher than 15% would be pretty exceptional long run.

I think the most dedicated local would count a season as all time if they got 30 powder days or more under a 20cm/8 inch definition remembering you could have a 50 cm storm cycle but spread over 3 days that might only be one "powder day".

When it snows can be as important as how much. I've skied a number of days when its been putting down at around 5+cm an hour in the daytime but then the storm blows through and the overnight increment is pretty disappointing.

1) This is the Alberta Rockies in general and we get a lot less snow than BC.
2) This is indeed skiing fixed days so limited flexibility to drop everything and shred.

For example a storm came across BC a week ago. It dropped almost 1.5m of snow on the Monashees and ~30cm at Lake Louise on a Tuesday..... so no good for those of use working Mon-Fri.

What's your definition of "proper powder day"?
As the originator of this issue, and the one who mentioned I have rarely skied resort powder days in the US, I can confirm that I am most certainly not picky in terms of what I regard as a powder day Laughing

I would define this as when, at opening of the ski lifts, there are fresh tracks to be skied either:
- On ungroomed trails; or
- On easily-accessed off-piste areas, next to or between trails.

I haven't thought about snow depth - but deep enough to produce the floating/bottomless sensation is always nice.

I'm certainly not discounting days where there was less than knee deep fresh snow - I am just making the point that, my experience of skiing Colorado and Utah (25 - 30 days in January of various years) has been virtually no fresh snow at all. Groomers R us! I have never encountered any massive snowfalls, or had issues with blocked roads or travel problems, like I have had in Europe and Canada.

Just the way it is - in the lap of the gods, as ever.

@bergmeister I suspect their threshold for what was a powder day was fairly low. There's just not as many powder days as people think. Whistler probably gets more snow than anywhere else in Canada and number of 20cm+ days per season:

20/21 - 7 (so far)
19/20 - 11
18/19 -15
17/18 - 9

Most years the resort is open about 150 days, so somewhere between 5-10% of days are powder days, which sounds about right to me.

So sweaman is doing pretty well getting 3 powder days per season while working full time.

This is all resort skiing though. Once you get touring, even just in resort slack country it's pretty much unlimited powder.

I always had the impression Colorado didn't get many big dumps, it was the combination of lots of small accumulations and cold temps that kept the snow good.

In the last 5 januarys Alta has only recorded 4 20cm+ days, and 3 of them were in 2019. I was surprised at that, I guess the Utah ski board is doing a good job with their advertising. Just goes to show that powder days are pretty rare. Perhaps our expectations are too high.

I have to say you've been incredibly unlucky.

I ski fewer days than you most years. Yet, I can easily remember more than 5 days of your definition of powder days.

-- I remembered being stuck in canyon traffic at Utah twice.
-- 2 or 3 "proper powder days" in Utah
-- Probably 2-3 of the same at Colorado. (I ski at Colorado a lot. So it's hard to remember days when it's only 10-15cm vs days that are 20cm+)
-- 1 in Whistler.

And numerous days when the resort only reports ~10cm at base, but we found knee deep powder in some part of the mountain.

In a lot of American west mountains, there're sectors of mountain that are entirely ungroomed yet is easy to access -- no hiking, just some traversing (Spalding@Copper or East Wall of A-basin comes to mind as examples). You can have your own fresh lines even though you may not be the first one to have arrived there.

Don't forget that there's powder and there's fresh untracked snow, and they are not the same. Also, that what the new snow falls on matters. 4" of blower pow over ice just hides the risks, but 4" of cement bonds nicely and is skiable. Change 'em both to 14" and it flips. By my definition, only the 14" of pow is a powder day, the others are fresh snow days.

Real powder days are obvious. Your usual early bird parking space is already taken. The lift lines are massive because the locals are out. Ecstasy loves company.

Are you willing to go to a lesser-known resort? The best ski trip I've ever had in North America was to Fernie: incredible terrain and epic snow. I will be back next winter, but accommodation on the hill is limited.


Jonny, can I just pick you up on this. There is a load of on-slope accommodation at Fernie. Apart from private rental lodges and chalets, there are the following hotels: Slopeside Lodge, Lizard Creek Lodge, Snow Creek Lodge, Timberline Lodges, Alpine Lodge, the Griz Inn and the Cornerstone Lodge.

On my two trips to Fernie, I stayed more towards town and, quite frankly, wished I hadn't and had booked one of the above!

When it's less than 5" over ice, head to the green trails. No risk there.

The side of the trail often have more than twice the snow depth because snow got pushed there. Moreover, you can float over the powder without touching the hard bottom by making small wiggly turns (or just straight line it).

Sierra cement/Cascade concrete don't count as "powder". Still, I've had skied real powder in Tahoe, even though that's less frequent than the cement.

This season has been interesting to say the least. I had 6 powder days of 20cm or more before the lifts started spinning with the touring option. So, agree with you there on the touring option. But the usual safe options for touring get tracked out really, really quick these days. It's amazing how many people are touring. It's not a 8% or 15% increase. It's not even 100% increase. It's more like 300% increase in people touring. You might have seen 30 or 40 vehicles in the sno park lots in years past. Now they are completely overflowing or you see 200 vehicles in the ski resort parking lots instead of the 40-50 vehciles you might otherwise have seen.

But I have skied a lot of 18cm-19cm days. I honestly can't tell the difference between 18cm and 20cm's. But I can tell the difference between 20cm and 30cm days, which I have had a few of this season! wink

FWIW this is what 19cm looks like from what the resort was reporting last week. So technically to most this was not a powder day. Glad most people stayed home and I shredded untracked all day with no lift lines. I'm quite happy for the masses to stay home until the snowstake hits 20cm's. Laughing

I don't think anyone is saying 20cm is significantly better (or even noticeably different) to 18cm. There are a big number of variables in play, I'm sure we've all had days where the actual snow depth does not directly correlate with how it feels ("this 10cm is skiing like 25 with all the wind transfer".

There just has to be some simple arbitrary cut off number to simplify things.

Guess it depends where you are. My friends in Canada are reporting Rogers pass, kicking horse slack, and ice fields parkway are same as normal (I.e. plenty of fresh lines, at worst you are going to be riding through a couple of tracks but nothimg resembling tracked out or moguls). I suspect in Europe where lifts aren't spinning there is a big increase in tourers.

Good eyes on Kimberley - That's what happens when you get 40cm on Family day long weekend....... so yes it is an extreme case but... You should have seen the line for the diesel powered triple...

I've toured a few times on Icefields this year and it's definitely a bit busier (can't comment on Rogers Pass) but it certainly doesn't feel like everyone's on top of each other either. I went out on Sunday and got 4 laps in a well known spot - there were a couple of other parties and we crossed some tracks at the end of the day but I was pleasantly surprised as the last snowfall was on Thursday so plenty of time for others to get there first.

Boot top or deeper (> 12 inches) days not necessarily falling from the sky. The less visited resorts have powder for days if you know them well.

And you just have to know which days to pick skiing which area. Huge variation of snowfall in places like Colorado and Utah in a relatively small geographical area - approx 1hr radius of where you call 'home'.

Same goes for Hokkaido.

For example, Niseko got 10-15cm across its four base areas last night. Kiroro, 50 mins away, got 60cm.

I'd agree. I've done 2 seasons at kicking horse and had less than 30 powder days total. I'd say around 10 per season is normal ime, which correlates pretty well with the bestsnow numbers. I mean you can find boot deep areas days after a storm, particularly if openings of areas are staggered and you know where to look - but I wouldn't call that a powder day.

As others have written earlier there are different takes on what constitutes a powder day.

If I'm skiing untracked boot top or deeper snow regardless if it's minutes old or days old, I'm skiing powder.

And I'm very lucky.

Very interesting thread and comments. I am also planning a NA trip but with a slight difference. I will not be seeking hard gnarly pistes or powder but rather the easy pistes ie European easy blue and red standard and will be using the trip as a chance to combine skiing and sightseeing over a 3 to 4 week period. In view of this I would be interested in any recommendations for NA resorts that meet this criteria (either east or west coast) and best airport hubs

It depends what type of sightseeing you want. In general I think a lot of the hubs (Denver, SLC etc.), while completely pleasant, are also not particularly interesting for tourists - even Vancouver is a bit meh especially in winter when it can be very wet and grey. If you are looking for nice cities (museums, history, culture, food etc.) and cruisy skiing EU has NA beat. If by sightseeing you mean more outdoor landscape and national park kind of things then n America.

My first suggestion would be to fly via NYC which is a fantastic city and worth a few days stopover for sightseeing. From there fly out west (skiing is just not reliable enough east).

With 3 or 4 weeks rental car and a road trip style holiday probably makes sense. Some kind of Tahoe - California - las Vegas trip is the thing that springs to mind most.

You probably need to provide a lot more info though to get some good suggestions. It really depends what kind of sightseeing you want.

I quite agree with that. I don't think I have that many "proper" powder days, defined as the day the snow falls on the same day and depth is over 8" (my personal definition of "proper powder"). But I've had many more days where I got to ski lots of fresh lines with over 8" of undisturbed snow.

Sometimes, it takes a long traverse. Other times, it maybe to navigate through some obstacles (slide over rocks with little snow cover). Or it maybe through glades where I may cross other tracks but nonetheless I ski largely undisturbed snow...

Or sometimes, being at the right mountain several days after a storm:

I got lucky in Hokkaido. Was only there for a week. 1 "proper" powder days. 2 more days, with boot top powder in the woods despite the last snow fall was like 3 days prior. Right next to the groomer, underneath the lift, but no one bother to ski it (I'm told Japanese skiers don't go into the woods?)

As previously mentioned I would be interested in resorts with the equivalent of european standard easy blue and red runs. Would then plan to fit in sightseeing etc around these resorts. Open to both east and west coast as there are several cities I would also like to visit.

Sightseeing as in see the Grand Canyon, or see Disney Land in Anaheim, CA?

For skiing easy blues and reds to Euro standards, Breckenridge, Steamboat and Snowmass in CO fit that bill. Or the ski resorts of Park City, UT (Deer Valley, The Canyons and PCMR)

You may consider Tahoe ski areas as well, Heavenly, Alpine Meadows and Northstar.

For simplicity's sake - Fly into DEN or SLC, then fly to the other. Spend a week in each location if that's what you might be looking for.

If you are feeling really adventurous. Fly into Vancouver, BC, ski Whistler-Blackcomb. Rent a car, cross the border, ski Mt Baker, then head South to Stevens Pass, WA. Hit that up for a day. Stay in kitschy Leavenworth, WA for a night and enjoy some faux Bavarian vibes and beers. Then head to Seattle and enjoy some outstanding seafood and the sights and sounds of Puget Sound. Then take the 90 minute drive to Crystal, WA for some turns. Then head to Portland, OR. Do a day at Timberline, and a day at Mt Hood Meadows. Night ski at Ski Bowl to really get your ski fix. (Stay at Gov't Camp) Then head South and East on Hwy 26 to Bend, OR. Ski Mt Bachelor for a day or two. Enjoy some burgers and brews at one of a dozen or so micro-brew pubs in Bend. Then drive South all the way to Reno/Tahoe and ski a few of the Tahoe ski areas. Gamble or take in a show in Reno and then hit up San Fran before flying home.
