Stehekin, WA. It's at the north end of Lake Chelan, with the only access by Lady Of the Lake boat or a float plane. The lake is 50 some miles long and Stehekin is surrounded by 5 glaciers. Stunning.

Pick any town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It's surrounded by Great Lakes so pretty much no matter which direction a winter storm comes from the peninsula gets piles of lake-effect snow.

As they like to say, the UP has two seasons: Winter's Coming, and Winter's Here.

However, the temperatures are downright mild there compared to the Iron Range or North Shore of MN.

OK, but the OP didn't ask for bitterly cold towns. He asked for snowy towns. Average annual snow fall on the North Shore is somewhere around 5 to 7 feet. Compare that to 12 feet in Saulte Ste. Marie, or 17 feet in Houghton.
