recently released some maps and info on the snowfall broken down by region. They have the most snowfall for each state as well. Where do you think gets the most snowfall for us?

Cold, rising air frequently is the common factor needed for the snowiest places. What area in Montana gets the most snow? Mystic Lake, MT does and it is located in the Beartooth Mountains. It receives 184. 3 inches of snow.

"We tallied snowfall totals for the 30-year period – July 1, 1985, through June 30, 2015 – for every location in NOAA's official climate database, looking for the top total in each state. " 

Remember this is data before this year, which has been a big snow year.
