LCC now 7th snowiest February on record

The Utah Avalanche Center published this today:

Our friends and colleagues in upper LCC at the Alta Guard station (UDOT avalanche team) have been keeping records of snowfall since 1945. February snow totals were 122" and 13.19" of SWE (Snow-Water-Equivalent - if you melted that 122" of snow into a cylinder). This ranks as the 7th snowiest on record and the 2nd wettest on record. Year to date is 320" and 32.36". It's been quite the run. Thanks to UDOT and the 'keeper of the ancient scrolls' Mark Saurer. All the numbers can be found here.
