The 2016/17 ski season was one of the best in North America history!
The 2016/ 2017 ski season gave us record breaking snowfall totals. They called it SNOWMAGEDEON, Janu-BURIED, Febru-BURIED, Miracle March, Awesome April, May Madness, and even June & July blew everybody’s minds. Many resorts extended their seasons, with five resorts still open. Squaw Valley, CA (#5) was open past 4th of July for the first time in their history. The biggest total? Over 72 FEET!
