Winter 2023/24 is here! Arriving more with a whimper than a bang, many resorts have delayed opening days due to lack of snow and warm weather, there are still plenty of resorts open across the continent for you to work up your appetite this weekend.

Most resorts are skiing on mainly manmade snow. Coverage is sketchy. Terrain is limited. Lifts are probably crowded. But who cares… winter is here.

These are the 13 resorts reporting the deepest snowpacks this weekend:
