Not only does Utah have the Greatest Snow on Earth, but it also has the most snow on Earth.
Consistent snowfall since November has taken Alta Ski Area, UT, passed 300″ for the season and planted them firmly at the top of the ‘snowiest ski resort on Earth’ charts.
As of this morning, Monday, January 9th, 2023, Alta has received 333″ this season and has a 115″ base. Elsewhere in North America, the only other resorts to have surpassed 300″ are Utah’s Brighton (331″) and Snowbird (311″).
Europe is suffering a dry winter, with several resorts closing due to a lack of snow. There are no resorts close to 300″ of snow this season. Saas-Fee, in Switzerland, has the most snow in Europe and has received over 261″ of snow since October.
In Japan, famous for its deep powder, the ski area reporting the most snow is Rusutsu, with a little over 260″.
For the Greatest and Most Snow on Earth, Utah is where it’s at.
