Just curious... what's your purpose in this? Seems silly on a ski site.

And I agree with Steve, the question seems inane, but I'm curious to hear why it's posed.
(All of the areas you mentioned: Eastern Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas receive substantial snow and ice.)

If you take a map of the US and make a kind of smiley face on it running the grin from San Francisco evenly curving down to southern NM and then curving back up to the N/S carolina border, you pretty much have it. Anything below that line will probably not snow and anything above it you may get occassional to frequent snow. There are some exceptions, like high places in the southern mountains that may snow and places along the northern coasts or offshore that don't snow much.

If you stay in the lowlands of Western Washington and Oregon you will rarely experience snow, maybe 2 days per year on average. Get up to near 1000' elevation and you'll start to have it fairly frequently.

It's like asking for directions to purgatory.

There is a wonderful site .... Teton Gravity Research aka ... TGR.

They are a wonderful bunch of folks over there and are much more knowledgable than most of us over here at Epic.

I am sure they will give you a warm reception and answer all of your questions on geography and the finer points of Nordic skiing.

Good Luck with your quest.

Ah, summer ... the gentle breezes, sunny skies, lame trolls...

Not like I'm hoping for his return, but Tai Chi Skier was a lot more fun.

Can anyone deny the influence of Tai Chi on all of us?:

It is my understanding that it has snowed at least once in EVERY state in the union during the last decade or so.

...and don't forget, even cities that you never think could get snow actually do on occasion. Places like LA, Phoenix, Dallas, Las Vegas, etc. All have received snow during the last few years.

Kind of gives a new meaning to hell freezing over*.






*The above opinion is unlikely to be shared by a majority of residents of LA, Phoenix, Dallas, or Las Vegas, but who cares what they have to say anyway? They live too far from decent skiing to be taken seriously..

Hey ! I would qualify for that part I underlined. Quit picking on me . I mean really, Circ even put a picture up of me in my very best stance here . What more do you guys need :

On a serious note, if we want to include US terratories, I don't think it has ever snowed in Guam !

DOH! I was going to add: "....except for Uncle Louie.", but my fingers got tired.

You could try Somalia. Friendly folks and cheap taxi service, hotel rates are very competitive.

Think of the potential to go down in history.
