here is a list of the maximum snowdepth for a few swedish cities

Lund: 49cm
Halmstad: 44cm
Visby:73:cm
Göteborg: 53cm
Borås: 70cm
Jönköping: 95cm
Ulricehamn: 110cm
Norrköping: 73cm
Västerås: 65cm
Falun: 91cm
Stockholm: 76cm
Örebro: 86cm
Särna:123cm
Sundsvall:120cm
Härnösand: 158cm
Piteå: 137cm
Luleå: 111cm
Karesuando: 104cm

For my place it varies widely. Last winter was incredibly dry, and the max snowdepth i measured was around 15cm. under the cold and snowy winters 2009/2010 and 2010/2011 i measured snowdepths of 70 and 60 cm respectivly. Worst year is 1989/1990 when it probably never reached above 5cm.

Interesting - unfortunately I don't believe records for snowdepths in this country are easy to find. The only ones I happen to know are:

Hampstead (London): 18 inches/ 45cm in January 1963
Oxford: "20-24 inches" / 50-60cm in February 1888
Bingley (recent decades only): 19 inches/ 48cm in February 1991
Scilly Isles: 9 inches / 23cm in January 1987

The deepest snow ever recorded anywhere in England was 83 inches / 210cm in Forest-in-Teesdale in March 1947.

I have no clue regarding the average snowdepth and I also don't know, how high snow probably must have been in some of those freak years in the 60s or 40s, but the highest snow depth I measured here at my place was 40 cm in December 2010 and that was definetely well above anything we experienced here in the last 20 years... Snow depth actually very rarely reaches 30, in some winters not even 20 cm (well, in some winters not even 10^^... in the winter of 2011/2012 we had only 2 days of snow cover altogether... (despite those 2 weeks of permanent frost in early february))

Not sure, such data does not exist. We had around 40cm in January 1995, and my grandmother has told me stories about how her father had to dig them out of their house in Feb 1947.
