If you live in a ski town, it’s probably for obvious reasons. You love the winter, and skiing or riding is your life. Living close to a ski area often means that the snow on the ski area will also fall in town.
Below are the snowiest towns and how much snow they received this season. Also included are nearby ski areas. To qualify, the city population had to be at least 500 people.

It is hard to believe that Mammoth Lakes, Ca is not on this list.
Calumet, MI: 317″ on the list but 168″ on the image (appears 168″ is the correct number; still impressive).
Valdez, AK: 285″ on the list but 150″ on the image.
