A few words on the Snow at Maverick Mountain Ski Area

Maverick has no detail snow data, so we estimate 225 inches snowfall, due to its location well leeward of the Idaho/Montana divide. Maverick is remote so powder can last a long time.

Accumulation and Preservation

Maverick's early season accumulation is probably slightly below average for western destinations. Exposure is mostly east, but it has a cold climate so snow preservation should be decent. Maverick is probably most reliable in February and March.
