This map is looking pretty dry and desolate, which isn’t what you want to see on the last day of November. Snow cover is relatively low in the United States right now, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t good skiing to be had. The low levels of snow cover can be attributed to abnormally warm temperatures this fall. All too often, precipitation has fallen in the form of rain and even when it does snow, it seems to melt quite rapidly. This isn’t the case everywhere though, as there are plenty of areas with above average snow for this time of year.
