Six of the Snowiest Cities in the United States

Weather.com examined the 30-year average annual snowfall data from NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center and compiled a list of America’s 6 snowiest cities. They limited the list to cities that had a population of at least 1,000 as of the latest census data. Unincorporated towns, mountain parks, and ranger stations were not included.

6. Boonville, New York

Average yearly snow: 193.7”

 5. Leed, South Dakota

Average yearly snow: 201.4”

 4. Truckee, California

Average yearly snow: 202.6”

 3. Hancock, Michigan

Average yearly snow: 211.7”

 2. Crested Butte, Colorado

Average yearly snow: 215.8”

 1. Valdez, Alaska

Average yearly snow: 326.3”

Valdez, Alaska takes the cake with an average yearly snowfall that totals over 27-feet high. Just to get an idea, that is a little more than three times taller than the tallest human on record, double the height of a one-story home, and almost hits the top of a football goalpost!
