Best bets for late March

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
We're in search of the best snow for a trip the 3rd week of March. We were scheduled for Fernie but have just been advised to reroute elsewhere.

Any suggestions of areas that should or could have good snow the last half of March given current conditions?

Conditions roundup for the west.
- West except of Jackson Hole is way below normal.(60%)

Predictions by Jim Roemer for Feb. are:
- the northwest (B.C.) will continue to be warm (rain at low elevations) and low in snowfall, possibly improving the end of March.
- Jackson Hole and Big Sky continued favorable
- Colorado and Utah improving end of Feb.

Given the above, any suggestions about whether to bet on
-Jackson Hole
-Alta/ Snowbird
-Aspen
-other

It's always a crap shoot when you're planning ahead. The conditions there now aren't necessarily a reflection of what they'll be a month and a half down the road.

Here's a good site that provides advice based on historic info, as well as stats on the respective mountain's elevation and exposure. http://members.aol.com/crockeraf/
