The snowstorm that swept across the western US over the weekend, dumping more than three feet of snow on many areas, has been one for the record books.

Cheyenne, WY, saw snow totals of 30.8 inches this weekend, the most the city has ever seen from one single snow event. The previous record was set in 1979 when the city received 25.2 inches over two days.

This same storm would be the fourth-largest snowstorm in Denver history, leaving 27.1″ of fresh snow at Denver International Airport.

In Casper, WY snowfall exceeded expectations and resulted in the third-largest snowstorm in the city’s history. 26.3″ of snow fell on Casper over two days. There have only been two larger snowstorms in the city’s history: 31.1″ on Dec. 23-24, 1982, and 27.9″ on April 18-21, 1973.
