Alta has had a deep start to winter so far.
Happy December! If we didn't know any better, we'd guess it's already mid-winter by the way the snowpack across the West has been looking as of late. Ski areas are seeing their snowiest starts to winter in 20 years, and there's tons of terrain open at mountains everywhere. Old Man Winter has been good to us so far, and with more snow on the forecast, it's only looking like it's getting better...

So here are the ski areas with the biggest snowfall totals this season so far. It's early in the year, and we're sure to miss some, so please comment below on who we should add to this list next time.
