It’s been a heck of a great snow year in the Northern Rockies this season.  Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana are dominating this list right now.  The Pacific Northwest usually dominates this list but this year, they only have one resort in the top 10.  The other 9 resorts are Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana.

After looking at this list, you shouldn’t have any doubts as to where you should plan your ski trip this winter.

These numbers are taken from the ski resorts’ websites.  We’re showing the upper mountain numbers only taken at 11:59pm on January 12th, 2015.

  1. The #1 claim at Kelly canyon is a lie. Granted they have good snow and coverage for this time of year but the reality is that their snow depth is probably at or under 30″ total depth right now. Total snow fall is probly around 40 something inches. Just figured you might want the truth.

  2. I love by Kelly canyon and there is no way there is 96″ up guaranteed. You should probably get the facts straight.

  4. I think Teton Village shows that 211″ of snow have fallen so far this season. How could that shrink to 75″ so quickly?
