The Californian resort now has more than three metres of snow on its slopes according to www.skiinfo.co.uk - 307cm on the highest slopes and 195cm at the base.
Other resorts in California are also receiving generous dumps, including a reported 166cm at Sugarbowl. Reports coming in from across North America are that conditions are good in most regions including the Rockies and New England.
With its 4.2m base, Italian glacier Passo Tonale boasts the deepest snow in the world, though the resort measures snow accumulated throughout the year. Another Italian resort, Pejo, takes second place.
