Anywhere else in the West Coast area puking?

This is not intended to be a bragging post, west vs east etc.

In Whistler we had a terrible january, about 10cm of snow for the month, temperatures going above then below freezing, alot of rain etc.

In the last 6 days we have had 175cm of snow.. has anywhere else on the West Coast had a huge amount of snow recently?

I think Cali and the PNW are getting nailed right now. I believe the Tahoe area is expecting snow for about a week, and getting it by the foot.

Colorado has been humming along nicely. We are pretty much above our seasonal averages already and another storm is bearing down. Overall it's been a great season, though I can do without a couple of the ice layers we have in the backcountry from a few warm storms. Berthoud Pass is looking to set a snowfall record set back in 1947. Pretty amazing actually.

Here in central Oregon, as of yesterday morning Mt. Bachelor got 31 inches of new snow in the previous 24 hours. I went up yesterday afternoon. Yes, it was sick.

It is still snowing steadily at the rate of about 4 to 6 inches per day and is predicted to continue through Thursday night. Yes, I am off of work Friday. You know where you will be able to find me.

Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday saw about 40cm each day. Still snowing, puking in the alpine (which is closed and accumulating snow)

I rode Kaibers, (out of bounds, around the side of Whistler peak and down to Creekside for anyone that knows the area) yesterday. Cruising glades, hiking through snow past my waist (im 6"2). Good stuff.

Looks like a good time for the West in general!

We're finally getting some rain (snow up high) here in Cali. I've been waiting for this to finally hit the slops. Just trying to figure out which day to "get sick". I'm sure the weekends will be a zoo since we haven't had any natural snow in the last month.
