Loon Mountain Annual Snowfall of 200 Inches?

post #1 of 4

It says so right here on their website:

Wouldn't this count as I don't know, a huge lie? To be off by like ummm 80 inches to get to that REAL nice sounding 200 inches by New England standards seems a bit much to be some sort of a simple oversight. Lots of snowmaking doesn't equal natural snowfall. There may have been this one time in the last 15 years that they had 200 inches, but this leads you to believe that they get 200 every year.  

 

What do you guys think?

What is your source for the actual annual snowfall total at Loon Mountain?

If you google "Loon mountain annual snowfall" 121 inches is the most common amount you get. I believe that is what they used to post on their site. There are some sources that say 150, 128, 160 etc. Tony Crocker's site says they get 168, which seems like a solid source.  

 

The other resorts close by such as Waterville and Cannon have bases that are pretty much 1000 feet higher yet they say that they only get  ~150.

 

For Loon to say that they get 200 seems to be a pretty big overstatement.

Skied there yesterday. They have a lot of catching up to do if they plan on making those numbers this year.......
