Snowfall has been plentiful throughout the Western United States this year. Canadian ski resorts such as Whistler and Revelstoke have experienced a great season as well so far. It’s crazy to say that its only March 29th and all of the top 15 snowfall totals in North America are above 485″. Look for Western Snowfall Totals to increase throughout the week with snowfall expected to hit the Grand Targhee/Jackson Hole area.

  1. Don’t ever believe the “Forest Service” excuse about when ski areas close. It’s all about the economics. Kirkwood may have the best spring snow preservation at Tahoe, but the sad fact is that not enough people are willing to drive there from the Central Valley or South Shore in late April/May to keep it going.

    And Squaw doesn’t deserve brownie points for opening on July 4 when they will probably be closed the entire month of June as in 2011.

    If you want quality spring skiing and support/maintenance (i.e. salting of groomed runs) from a management that cares about spring skiing, go to Mammoth.

  2. Don’t forget about the other 1/2 of North America…
    Seymour 527″
    Hemlock 502″
    (just misses: Whitewater 481″)

  3. Amazing snow totals. Something isn’t right when Kirkwood’s last day is April 16th, Northstar a week later and Heavenly a week after that. I have heard the story of it’s the forestry service causing Vail to close the Tahoe resorts when they are. Yet apparently pre vail Kirkwood stayed open longer at times. Meanwhile Squaw will be skiing into June and both Squaw and mammoth plan to be open July 4th.
