No ski resort received more snow in the 2012/13 winter season than Alyeska ski resort in Alaska.  726” is a heck of a lot of snow and we’re confident that they enjoyed every inch of it.

Now that we think of it – Alyeska might not only be #1 in snowfall, but in BBQs, vistas, sunsets, and liftie rock-a-bility as well... (photographic evidence forth coming)
