This season has been weird.
I’ve seen a lot of people use similar words to describe the weather of winter ’21-’22, and I just have to agree. It doesn’t really seem like any region of the Lower 48 has really had anything close to a normal season, right?
I mean, Tahoe got pummeled by 200″ in December, and then it’s barely snowed since. Utah got off to a decent early-season start, and then it didn’t snow for like 2 months. Colorado has just been so-so throughout the entirety of the season. The PNW has battled more rainstorms than normal (at least it feels that way). And finally, the Northeast had a very mediocre year (maybe that’s actually kind of normal come to think of it).
A weird year indeed, and it we aren’t done just yet. A monster spring snow storm has dumped copious amounts of the white fluffy stuff all across the American west just as some ski resorts are getting ready to call it a season.
Some resorts, like Powder Mountain, UT, actually closed last weekend before the storm even hit. It’s…well…weird!
Congrats if you’ve made it this far, and apologies for my ramblings. I just wanted to provide what I thought was the necessary background information for this article.
I’ve compiled a list of ski resorts who have totaled the most new snowfall over the last 7 days.
All snow totals are pulled directly from each ski resort/area’s website. 7 day snowfall total unless otherwise noted. Please note that these totals will change throughout the week as the storm is still active in some parts of the country. Totals recorded morning of April 13th, 2022.
