Quadruple last year’s snowfall.
Wexford County had seen more total snowfall by the end of November this year than it did through December of 2013, says Al Cooper, Wexford County Road Commission manager.
So far, said Cooper, the county has received a total of 62 inches of snow this season. Last year, the road commission reported a total of 22.75 inches of snow by Dec. 31.
Pete Meyer, general manager of business operations at Caberfae Peaks, said the resort has received more snow on their hills recently than he’s ever seen.
“It’s the earliest that we’ve been 100-percent open in the last 30 years,” Meyer said. “What has been most helpful are the below-average temperatures. That’s allowed us to make snow and open earlier this year.”

Meyer said the ski resort has reported 59 inches of natural snowfall as of Dec. 16.
Last year, the ski resort had reported 13.5 inches of snow as of Dec. 16.
The NOAA reported 53 percent of the lower 48 states had some snow cover on Dec. 15. The percentage topped all readings on that date since records began in 2003.
