Winner: Mt. Hood, Oregon
After several recent winters that left the massive, volcanic Mount Hood looking less like a ski destination and more of a landmark, the mountain is finally buried in snow again and giving out the goods to patient Oregonians. The first four days of 2017 saw supercold conditions with light accumulation, but Mt. Hood Meadows (which is home to the largest night ski area in the country) will be scooping up 65.3 inches of accumulation from Saturday to Tuesday, thanks to Winter Storm Helena.
