I know it snows in the winter.

But exactly how much? And how often?

Quite a bit. It isn't uncommon to receive 200 inches in a season. The lake effect precip slams up against the plateau, and it hemorrhages snow as a result. However, because lake effect shifts with wind, you might receive a foot of snow in three hours, than go without snow for two of three snows, and then get hit with another foot-deep burst of snow that all falls in a few hours. In the rare case the winds aren't strong enough to shift it- well, you remember those articles in the NY Times about some towns getting 140 inches? That's what happens, though usually not as bad.

Try 300 in places. Turin, Lowville and even parts of Watertown get hammered. Great X-Country skiing, snowmobiling. If you are an outdoors person and dont mind a tough winter...this is paradise.
