The answer is yes. The current snowpack snow water equivalent (SWE) at Snowbird is 7.9". Similar snowpack SWEs were observed at Snowbird on this date in 1994 (7.9") and 1999 (7.7"). There have been some changes at the site that introduce some uncertainties to this comparison, but for the sake of this discussion, we'll treat these observations as "truth."
In 1994, the snowpack SWE increased during the rest of the winter to about 32", but peaked well short of average. In 1999, however, Mother Nature continued to provide the goods well into May and the snowpack SWE peaked above average at just over 50". It looks like there must have been a fairly healthy spring runoff that year.

BTW, if you are looking for snow, Niseko, Japan reports a 1.5 m snow depth at the base, 3.0 m at the summit, and 60 cm new snow. Anyone wishing to sponsor me for a trip should call me immediately.
Update 8:40 AM:
Oh yeah, there's also the Chugach. Biggest December on record in Valdez according to the NWS.
