PARK CITY, Utah — Unless you have been living under a rock, you know it has been a fantastic start to the 22/23 ski season in Utah, and it’s not just the massive snowbanks on every street and the countless double-digit powder days telling the tale.
Historical snowfall data from Ski Utah shows how much snow we have this year compared to the last five ski seasons. Outside of the epic 18/19 season, Deer Valley and Park City Mountain have already received more snow as of January 12 than the entire season totals for the last five years.

Emily Summers, Senior Communications Manager at Deer Valley, said, “The only season that has had a higher snowfall total (At Deer Valley) by the end of January was the 16/17 season. The three-month total there (Nov thru Jan) was 308” and full season total was 432” per Ski Utah data.
“This has been a pretty remarkable start to the season as far as snow totals go, and that applies across all fifteen of our ski resorts in Utah. To put it in perspective, in Utah we typically expect about 500″ of snow per year on average,” said Alison Palmintere, Director of Communications for Ski Utah. “Alta Ski Area is currently reporting 370″ to date, which is just under 75% of the average snowfall for an entire season. It’s only mid-January! It looks like we have more snow in the forecast, and we’re just excited that all of our guests and locals are able to enjoy The Greatest Snow on Earth®.”
With an estimated closing date of April 16 for Deer Valley and April 9 for PCMR, we have a LOT of time left to potentially rival the historic 446″ season of 13/14 at PCMR.
