Anchorage On Pace To Break Total Snow Record

By | February 29, 2012

Anchorage is on track to break the total snow fall record for the season. As of Wednesday, 119.9 inches had fallen in the city. The record is 132.8 inches, set back in the winter of 1954-1955. And National Weather Service Meteorologist Dave Snider says there is more snow in the forecast.

The average snowfall for March and April combined is 14 inches. Snider says it’s been a fun winter to be a meteorologist.

The snowiest winter ever in Anchorage was followed the next year by the second snowiest winter. Snowfall totals in Anchorage still pale in comparison to Girdwood. Alyeska Ski Resort is reporting 715 inches have fallen since October at the top of the mountain.
