The 2012/2013 winter ski season was not your typical winter season for many parts of the United States. Some areas of the United States, like the PNW, saw heavy early season snowfall while other parts of the United States received hardly anything. Colorado had a very slow start to the season but saw late season snowfall bring their totals up to near average levels (Breckenridge Receives 49.5″ of Snow In April).
The Tahoe area had would could only be described as a historically bad season with the Driest January & February On Record.
The Alaskan ski resort of Alyeska also saw a slow start to the winter season (Alyeska Is Having A “Bad” Season) only to finish up the season with the most snowfall of any US ski resort.
Jay Peak, Vermont made the list of 10 snowiest US ski resorts this season with a respectable 362″.
