There will always be outliers and anomalies. The important thing to remember is they are not an indication of a lack of climate change, and while the intermountain west is getting more rain in winter months some places will actually manage to benefit from warming. If multiple years string together with more rain than snow it becomes a bigger concern for places like Utah and Colorado. Not only because it ruins some of the local economy, but also because water is a precious resource (especially with growing populations).
