With over 180 inches so far, Idaho’s Schweitzer Mountain Resort is well on its way to eclipsing their average annual snowfall of 300 inches.

Records dating back to the 1982-83 season show this as the deepest early-season snowpack on record.

Schweitzer’s Ski Patrol Director, Arlene Cook, has been patrolling at Schweitzer for 30 years and can’t remember a December with this much snow.

“Simply put, it feels like February,” said Cook. “When you can’t count the number of powder days you’ve had in December, you know it’s been a good season.”

“To see 180 inches this early in the season is extraordinary,” said Schweitzer Marketing and Sales Director Dave Kulis.
