Canadian resorts are experiencing fresh snow falls with well over a foot accumulating over the next couple of days: the heaviest snow will be in western British Columbia with more moderate falls further inland. The latest snow takes the season total in Whistler to 589 centimetres.
Many US resorts are basking in glorious sunshine - the last snowfalls in Colorado and California were on New Year's Day - although Jackson Hole, in Wyoming, and resorts in Montana are expecting a light covering this week.
There's a chance of fresh snow in The Alps towards the end of the week. Meanwhile the best conditions are to be found in the highest resorts and those with glaciers: Val Thorens has 210 centimetres on the higher pistes and in Zermatt there's 195 cm at the summit.
