What parts of PA get snow, and how much? I have never really been to PA, but we are looking for a place to relocate that has a good dose of snow for winter sports. Let me know!

Any place along the "Allegheny front" gets a good dosage of snow, some places over 100" a year. Also, the northwestern part of the state (Erie and Crawford county) gets a lot of lake effect snow and has a solid snowcover for several months out of the year. Some snow towns include Erie, Bradford, Warren, Du Bois, Franklin, Edinboro, Corry, Kane, St. Marys and Clearfield. In the southern tier of the state, where the highest elevations in the Commonwealth are located, there are also some very snow parts like Somerset, Garret and Ohiopyle near Laurel mountain and some other towns near Allegheny mountain. The southwestern and southeastern corners of the state average around 30" or less.

Exactly - great post! The northwestern portions of the state as well as the laurel highlands get the most snow in general.

Does anyone have any pictures? I noticed that his forum doesn't have a picture post, but I would LOVE to see PA in the winter, or anytime, really.

Most snowfall of PA's cities: Erie area (by far!)

The snowbelt in PA: a line approx. 20 miles south of Erie, running ENE. Lake effect snowfalls dump ridiculous amounts on these areas (100+ inches per winter).
