|You know you are spoiled when this is one of the "worst" powder days |
you've had all year. Tyler Cruickshank getting the goods

There is presently 49.9 inches of SWE at the Snowbird SNOTEL site (green line below), 163% of average for this date. A quick look suggests this might be the highest value since 1990. The 2005 and 2006 water years aren't far behind and those were also big snow years.
The bottom line is that this has been a big year, and the storms, especially early in the year, were well spaced to keep the conditions consistently good. Yes indeed, we are living the dream this year.
