The Travel Channel has ranked the top 10 snowiest ski resorts in the world this week. We know this list is inaccurate, but it’s still fun to see how the outside world sees our snow realm.
Alta, UT averages 563” of snow per season. Timberline, OR avergages 551” of snow per season, so right off the bat, we know this list is incorrect. Grand Targhee, Kirkwood, Snowbird, Sugarbowl, Solitude, & Brighton all average 500” of snow per season. The list is clearly askew as it has Kirkwood in there, but none of the other 4 ski resorts that average 500” per year.
