I'm not talking about records from the 50's. i'm talking about recent years like 2006, 2007 and part of 08..

plan on relocating to a different state soon. preferably a state with a lot of snow and where it's cold.

If you're talking about a tremendous amount of snow~New Hampshire seems to have had more then enough of it this year. My guess is that any of the states by the Great Lakes would also be a good spot for you.

Wyoming, Minnesota, and Montana also come to mind. They may not have as much snow as the others I mentioned, but they probably have the coldest temps, especially Mn.

Welcome to the forum.

you might want to try the Tug Hill Plateau also, the average over 250 inches of snow a year and the average low in January is 0. Btw, the tug hill is in Upstate NY

The great lakes affects it pretty good, if you live on the "downwind"(the southern shore of the lake) you'll get tons of lake effect snow, but keep in mind the closer you are to the lakes, the warmer it'll be because the lakes moderate winter temps.

another place is the UP of Michigan, west of Marquette in the Higher elevations, the average up to 300 inches of snow a year and the January average low there is anywhere between 0 and -10.

good luck, and welcome to the forum

Parts of Colorado get dumped on a LOT. Wolf Creek Pass ski area had 492" this season. Not sure how cold they get there though. Northern Maine is fairly cold (44 days below 0 this winter) but not a tremendous amount of snow (110" on average, 198 this year). The UP of Michigan can be real cold and gets a lot of snow because of the lake effect off of Lake Superior.

I spent one winter in Syracuse, NY. The city got its average snowfall of 120" that winter and it coped beautifully. The streets were cleared promptly and the schools were never closed. If you love snow and want to live in a big city, that's the place to be.

BTW, the first snowfall I experienced that winter I was there was no piddly trace or flurries. It was 18 inches!

actually we sometimes go away for a holiday to Odessa or to South Ukrain area so there isn't that much of snow there, I am not even sure they see it each year : )
I live not far from Moscow and it seems we've got some shrinkages in the snow amount falling down in winters, 'greenhouse' you know : ) but it will never stop being snowy in our Siberia's area! And actually when I was a child I used to live in Murmansk region (directly upwards from Moscow to the North until it's the adge of the land) and I happend to see 'polar lightning' and there was a huge amount of snow as if all the snow of the world had been moved there and we could make kinds of mazes underneath the snow surface! It was really amusing such a thing!
