We're kicking off our #52AdventureChallenge with Snowventure: an adventure in the snow. There are a ton of options to fill this challenge including sledding, skiing, snowshoeing, winter camping, visiting a backcountry hut, or simply building a snowman in your neighborhood park.
The record for the most snowfall in one day is held by Silver Lake, Colorado. In 1921, an April snowstorm dropped 75.8 inches in a 24-hour span. The blizzard actually continued non-stop for over 32 hours and dropped a total of 95 inches of snow.
The snowiest region in the country is the Cascade Mountains of western Washington state with Mount Rainer and Mount Baker ranger stations reporting much more snow than anywhere else in the United States. The 1998-1999 season was record breaking for the Mount Baker ski area. A new world record for total annual snowfall was set when 1,140 inches, or 95 feet, fell during the season.
Average annual snowfall for places that receive over 300 inches of snow a year:
