My own experience is that Sweethome gets a little more snow than other places in the Valley. The higher you go the more you will get, and the longer it will last. I am only a few hundred feet higher than the surrounding city, but the snow every year comes more often, is deeper, and stays longer by a couple of weeks. I am at 400 feet ASL on a hillside facing West. I am not in Sweethome, but a similar terrain in the Valley, and I am familiar with the area around Sweethome as a Hunter and Prospector.

Last Winter two weeks and twice. This is March.

You won't get a lot of snow in Sweet Home. There's plenty of rain, though.

It's a pretty little town, beautiful scenery, good fishing and hunting. Close to drive to snow and skiing if you want it. Downside, not all that close to good shopping or medical.

Like all of those little towns along the mountain highways, it is more attractive if you get back away from the highway a little bit.

Just moved to the Foster area and came across this forum. Very thankful that I did, as I was wondering what kind of snow I might be looking at this winter. We are about six miles up 20 so I am guessing we are going to get our share. Thank you to all who posted on this subject!

I will agree with many others here, Sweet Home is quite sweet. Very nice small town within reasonable driving distance of the bigger areas. Snow, a little more than the Willamette Valley floor, but nothing outrageous. If I had a job in Albany I probably would live in Sweet Home.
