A quick google search showed that Tamarac, California holds the seasonal record for the most snowfall in the US.

Thank you, excellent list confirms why I did not move by sister in the UP! She is between Gladstone and Manistique! I do wonder though why Houghton is not on the list, in the Keweenaw Peninsula!

Than you, bellafinzi

I added your link to my "fovorites" for quick,easy reference.

It appears upstate NY and the UP of Michigan dominate.

Seeing Flagstaff Arizona's snowfall total also reaffirms my decision to drop that as a relocation destination despite their milder winter temps than MN and their "perfect" summer temps.

Santa Fe, NM is another metro you could look into. It is a dry climate with occasional snowfall. It is also very sunny there.

Yeah, but Syracuse and Rochester gets waaaaaaaay more than Buffalo does. Buffalo only averages around 90 inches while Rochester and Syracuse both average over 110 inches.
