Quebec Ski Resort Sets New Snowfall Record

STORY BY Patrick Thorne 16th March 2017

The southern Quebec ski area of Mont Sutton has broken its all-time snowfall record thanks to storm Stella, receiving more than a metre of snow in 24 hours at its base.

This smashes the previous record of 75cm of fresh snow fall in 24 hours set just over a decade ago on February 16, 2007.

“Skiers will be able to enjoy this deep powder snow, that is still accumulating, during the next few days. This snowfall marks a full return of winter to the great pleasure of snow sports enthusiasts, who will be taking part in history,” said resort spokesperson,” Chloé Chagnon

Mont Sutton, located just a few miles north of the US border, was established in 1960.  Some ski areas in the US including Killington in Vermont have also received a metre of snow from Storm Stella.

Although Western North America has seen record snowfalls this winter, with upper slope bases at Mammoth Mountain still above 8.5m, and at Squaw Valley above 6m, with both resorts planning to open on US Independence Day July 4th this year, in Canada resorts in the East of the continent are posting the country’s biggest snow depths with Mont Ste Anne in Quebec claiming a 4.3m base, one of the deepest in  the world.
