Does anyone have a good source for yearly snowfall in various area of Colorado Springs? I tried weather underground but their site is corrupted.

I am not aware of a data source that tracks different parts of the city consistently over time accurately; I think most sources only go to city level, using the airport is the default location usually.

I do think such a source would be super interesting so I'd be excited to learn if such a thing does indeed exist!

I read articles in the Gazette about snowfall for an individual storm and the numbers are dramatically different with the official airport number being way lower than elsewhere.
If “Colorado Springs “ gets 40 inches a year, does Black Forest get 100?, 200?

This site has readings from various weather stations all over the state, though it is not real user friendly. Not sure if there is some way to roll up the totals, or if you have to look at each day individually.

Snow amounts usually increase north from downtown towards the Palmer Divide.

Certainly true most of the time, but some storms have dramatically different amounts, I.e. 1” downtown and 8” in Black Forest.

Have you ever wondered why there are trees in the Black Forest and Woodmor?

That is a damn good question.

For the same reason they get a lot of snow; the wind stalls with the rise in elevation and drops everything it's carrying.

Isn't that essentially what I wrote?
