The Alta Low Snowfall Record Falls

My friends at UDOT tell me that Alta-Guard sits at 276.8" of snowfall for Nov–Apr.  The previous low was 314.5" in 1976/77.

With nothing but a flurry or two possible through the end of the month, the record is in the bag.  Congratulations, you survived the lowest snowfall season since WWII, although I still rate 1976/77 as a worse ski season (see Has There Ever Been a Snow Season Like This?).

Of course, the usual caveats apply (see Limitations of Long-Term Snowfall Records).
