A Few Words On The Snow
Chasing powder at Mont Sutton doesn't provide the amount of bounty as, say, Alta — where else does? —
but skiers at Mont Sutton stand a decent chance of seeing a nice snow event once every seven days. On average,
10.4% of winter days see more than 6 inches of snow — enough for most people to have fun.
If you're not having fun, then ski faster. But make sure you're actually good before you ski fast. Really good.

Snow can be hit and miss at Mont Sutton. Like most places, if you put in your time on the mountain, you'll eventually be rewarded with
a giant month that sees more than 90 inches of snow. It might take you three winters, but it will be worth it when that 30-day burst of weather
magic happens. With 5.0% of winter months getting more than 90 inches of snow, the odds of a bumper harvest
aren't entirely favorable for the destination skier, but it happens enough to keep locals from moving to Alaska. Most of them, anyhow.
The snow at Mont Sutton is somewhat dependable, although the threat of a prolonged dry streak is possible when taking a trip here, as
