This winter is insane. Resorts in California have received so much snow that lifts are buried, and they can’t open. And it won’t quit snowing in Utah, where resorts have record-breaking seasons.

This started as a list of ‘these resorts have all received 500″ of snow’. However, there were so many that the threshold quickly increased to 600″.

The resorts below are all in the 600 Club:

(all numbers were taken from resorts’ websites at 8 am PST on 03/16/23, and where possible, the summit reading is used.)
