Although the 2023/24 ski season has not packed the same punch as the 2022/23 ski season, a handful of resorts have still seen above average snowfalls in great powder conditions. As you can see below on our unofficial list of the snowiest ski resorts of the year, ski areas in Utah have had a great ski season with a number of resorts landing on the top five snowy ski areas of this 2023 2024 ski season.

Unfortunately, other parts of the United States have experienced below-average snowfalls this ski season, particularly the East Coast and Midwest.
