The Keweenaw Road Commission shared last week that they’ve recorded over 300 inches of snow this winter. The 25 feet of snow is about 6 feet more than normal. While that’s definitely a whole lot, it’s 356 inches of snow recorded in the winter of 1978–79.

Nathan took this photo at the beginning of February at McLain State Park near Hancock on the Keweenaw Peninsula. See more in his McLain State Park Snowshoeing – February 2022 gallery on Flickr.

  1. Amazing!

    Since I’m from the area in upstate New York that gets similar amounts of snow to this – the Tug Hill plateau region, I can attest to just how massive amount of snow that this is in Michigan. :)

    Currently, I live in Southern Oregon + have snowmobiled near Crater Lake – where they get this kind of snow. It is always just amazing to see so much snow.

    Thx for posting all of this beautiful info about the great state of Michigan!
