Winter is certainly here and we’ve been seeing snow across the country, but some ski resorts are getting the real deal! Think California, Colorado, Utah, the Southwest, Northern Rockies and Canada.

Time to whip out the yardstick because snow is starting to come in feet, not inches! These resorts are getting lucky and have no shame showing off their goods. #measurementsmatter.
