Alyeska has gotten 791 inches of snow since October 1st and 704 inches since November 1st. They have 138” base at mid-mountain. With most of the West hurting for snow, this 791 inches sounds like the promise land. If there was ever a year to go to Alaska for a springtime trip, this is the year. At Squaw, we’ve only gotten 274 inches of snow this year.
