Question Which state in the US gets the most snow?

Could anyone out there give me a list of the states that get the most snow, but in order.
Please list the name of the states, and particular towns or cities.

Thanks

A few cities that come straight to mind for snow are:

Valdez, Alaska
Syracuse, New York
Flagstaff, Arizona
Yakima, Washington

These are just what places immediately jumped to mind for snow. Now waiting for others to chime in.

Syracuse is underestimated but definetly not the most.

Valdez, Alaska 326.0"
Blue Canyon, Calif. 240.3"
Marquette, Mich. 141.0"
Syracuse, N.Y. 115.6"
Caribou, Maine 111.6"
Flagstaff, Ariz. 100.3


Are you including mountain totals too? Because ski resorts in Washington, Colorado will beat anyone I believe. Mount Rainier gets over 300" and the snow lasts until June!

Good luck and post your project when done!

Wow! Thanks. WA gets hammered from all the storms entering up there plus the temp factor = a ton of snow. :-)

Oregon's Mount Hood gets tons of snow
...averages over 300" at 4000ft level...even more higher up
...has a long ski season, into June

Stewart,BC on the Alaska border, next to Hyder,AK
is Canada's snowiest place, averages over 360" of snow annually

Colorado Rockies above 9000ft usually average 200 to 300" of snow
in a normal year

Flagstaff, Arizona can pretty much be excluded from the list because the snow there doesn't stick, hence NO snow pack.

Flagstaff is no match for the Cascades, Alaska, or upstate/western NY (just examples). However, that statement isn't really accurate:
