How much snow does a mountain need to get to make a good ski resort?

    The link below lists some good examples.   Colorado gets on average 350 inch per year, and that is about the lowest in the western US.  Any place with over 325 inches per year average is considered good ski territory.

    There are a lot of good ski resorts throughout the U.S. that are in areas without high seasonal snowfall totals (less than 100 inches). Breakthroughs in snow-making technology have made it possible to supplement a lack of natural snow. That being said, my favorite ski resorts regularly receive 350+ inches of snow annually. This makes for amazing conditions and a long season. Some of the resorts that fall in this category are Jackson Hole, Mt. Baker, Heavenly, Snowbird, and Timberline ski resort.
