With winter dropping in on some of the mountains in North America for another quick visit to close out an already wonderfully white October, it’s time to prep for the upcoming season by taking a look at the existing snowpacks. A handful of ski resorts in California just picked up a few extra inches of white (see Snowfall Totals for more info) while places in British Columbia have been continuously picking up the goods since September (check out Revelstoke Dreaming for more news.)

There are others who have gotten big snow this season, such as Whistler, BC and the Ski Big 3 in Banff, AB, but snowfall totals haven’t been updated to their websites. Most snowfall totals come from upper mountain measurements.
