Mammoth Mountain, the only ski area still open in California, has reported 5.5 inches (14cm) of new snow in the past 24 hours to add to its 8-12 foot base. Arapahoe Basin has reported another inch of snow in the past three days, topping up its 44 inch (110cm) base.

Six of its seven lifts are running and about 75% of the total terrain open.
North of the border in Canada Whistler's Olympic ski season continues and Banff's Sunshine ski area is in to the last fortnight of its long winter.
The lifts are no longer running at Silver Star Mountain in British Columbia but Canada's National Team and development team cross country skiers are enjoying beautiful spring conditions.
Mike Cavaliere, Head Coach of the National Development Team states "The ski conditions are ideal, great grooming and sunny skies."
The athletes stay at Silver Star Mountain Resort and use the National Altitude Training Center weight room in the afternoon.
This year cross country skiers were able to ski eight months of the year on Silver Star Mountain. (October-May) The National Cross Country Ski Team starts their winter season at Silver Star (November) and starts their spring training for the new training year at Silver Star (May).
98 Olympic medals were won by athletes in cross country skiing and biathlon who trained at Silver Star Mountain leading into the 2010 Olympic Games.
