Snow Recap So Far...

The season started off with Whistler setting the standard for all other Western resorts. With over 18 feet of snow falling in November, the resort officially broke its record for most snowfall for the month. To date, they have received nearly 400 inches, and still have half a season to go.

Other resorts throughout the Western US got a bit more of a slow start to the season. Storms in Colorado and Utah would sporadically dump snow on occasion, giving locals and visitors hope for a season like last year. The snow so far hasn’t quite been what was dreamed about, but with the snowiest months on record coming up, there is plenty of potential.

Jackson Hole is having another great year. Over 16 feet of snow have fallen on the summit to date providing skiers and riders with the face shots they expect to receive from the Tetons.

In this past week, storms have moving through Utah, Wyoming, California, leaving behind plenty of white gold. It remains to be seen how the rest of the season will turn out, but hopes are high that Mother Nature will make February, March, and April months to remember.
