Yes, do the math. 547 divided by 12.

547 Inches of snow is what Loveland Ski resort reported this year.

For those w/o a calculator or (like me) are lazy, that's a little over 45 & a half FEET

FEET

45 feet

that's a record. Holy crap.

And we got a drought here in town. LOL.

Anyone other than Gloria seen that much snow at once? I remember living upstate NY (Watertown, 13601, off of the St. Lawrence river & Lake Ontario) where the snow usually built up 8-12ft on the berms. But 45ft? That's unreal. Now, mind you, you won't see 45 ft piles of snow.. it's packed & melted so it'd only be like 10-12ft deep. But that's still ridiculously deep.

Toni - from what I've heard, the Rockies had a plethora of snow this year! A friend lives in Squaw Valley outside of Tahoe, and they broke all kinds of snowfall records this year. I think he said 800+ inches this year, and their snow season isn't quite done yet..

Dahlia - that's because Calgary is too frickin' COLD to snow!!! Brrrr!!!

Vail pass is getting another 8-12" of snow today... Just won't stop snowing in the mountains!! At least the mountain reservoirs are going to be full.. But the white-water rapid boating companies are hurting right now because its still too cold for runoff. Spring's running about a month & a half late.

Here's a great picture showing the pileup. It's not plowed that deep, that's just how deep it is. Here's the original article:

We ate lunch here last year. It's a 16' roof.

The road crews are hoping to have the road open by Memorial Day. Hopefully.
