The snowiest season in recorded history
With official snowfall records that date back over two decades, we’ve set a new record as we break the 700 inch mark. With one powder day after another, this season has been a blur of deep turns, endless fun, and hard work. Let’s look back, refresh our memories, and talk about how we got here.
We opened a week early and kicked the season off with knee-deep powder. That’s always a good omen, right?
Things started getting extra deep around mid-December, a month in which we saw 120 inches of snowfall.
This season had us making all kinds of faces.
That one line on the mountain you’d never skied before: This is the year to ski it.
By early January, it was obvious this wasn’t going to be a normal winter. By the end of January, another 180 inches had been dropped on us, bringing our season total to over 400 inches.
At a certain point, snow removal becomes an art form.
Our favorite bootpacks and traverses have been especially rewarding this season.
We’re finding new stashes and going bigger than ever.
We rolled through February with 111 inches of new snow, then March came at us with a vengeance, dropping another 184 inches. And the month isn’t even over yet. This is now one of those winters you tell your grandkids about.
Sure, it’s almost April but the greatest season ever isn’t even close to finished. Did you hear? We’re spinning lifts until May 21. The most snow and the longest season we’ve ever had. Those are a couple of records worth celebrating.
