Snowfall totals across Colorado can vary wildly thanks to elevation changes, weather patterns, and many other factors. Here's a look at how much snow towns around Colorado get, with the top spot experiencing more than 200 inches on average throughout the year.

Editor’s Note: The snowfall totals mentioned in this gallery are annual averages for the towns mentioned based on weather data collected for the NOAA National Climatic Data Center for the years 1981 to 2010. The number of days of snowfall in each town is based on accumulations of at least 0.1 inches of snow.

This is obviousy a pick and choose list. There are many locations with this much snow. In fact I was the offical NOAA observer in Silverton in many of the years in this study and I don't think we had less than 150 but for a couple of years.


Did you forget Breckenridge snow total?

Woodland Park? (89"); Cripple Creek? (118"); Breckenridge? (366").
