Final Post of the 2023-2024 Season

Summary

Thanks for reading the Winter Park Daily Snow this season, and best wishes for a wonderful spring, summer, and fall!

Update

On Monday, April 22, 2024, I wrote my "final" post of the season. Then I wrote additional posts because late-season powder was on the way, and we wound up with 12 inches of snow from Thursday night to Monday morning (April 25-29, 2024) and multiple days with fresh powder.

That was a great way to wrap up April, and now I will write my "actual" final post of the season on April 29 (though the Mary Jane side will stay open into May).

I appreciate your readership and support of the Winter Park Daily Snow!

This 2023-2024 season at Winter Park started slowly with below-average snowfall during November and December. Then a mid-January storm cycle delivered significant snow accumulations, and storms arrived at more regular intervals with closer-to-average snowfall from late January through April. In the graphic below, the large decrease in April is due to some melting of the snowpack and not a lack of new snow for the month (the mountain picked up about 47 inches during April).

The slow start meant that our snowpack was below average through early January, and then we enjoyed a stretch when snow fell for 13 out of 15 days in mid-January. This pushed our snowpack close to average, where it would stay through late April.

I hope you have a wonderful spring, summer, and fall, and again, thanks for reading the Winter Park Daily Snow this season!
