Default How much snow does Roanoke get in the winter?

I live in Billing montana and want to live where the winters don't last very long or have much snow if any. I know Roanoke gets some snow but are you pretty much unable to hike the trails all winter long. Or can you still get outdoors in the winter. I'm tired of being housebound do to icy snowy freezing weather. So in Roanoke how are the winters? Here in Billings, it's Nov through March.

R-noke's average is 23.1 (although I don't think it's been that heavy in recent years). Billings, MT averages 56.9

You can hike year-round here, and getting out and around is generally no problem. The only reason that I use the word "generally" is because of situations like last weekend. We got about 2' of snow in 24 hrs and the valley was basically crippled. There is no level of preparedness here like there is in places that routinely get a lot of snow. But this was not the norm!
