Mount Shasta: Is U.S. Snowstorm Record in Jeopardy?

...and you get a storm total of 176 inches. On the low end.

Add up the high end of the numbers and you get a forecast maximum of 218 inches of snow in four days!

How would that kind of four-day snow total stack up? Consider these major all-time snowfall records that would be broken with a 200-inch snowfall:
•According to Weather Underground, the world record for a single snowstorm is 189 inches in six days -- guess where? Mount Shasta Ski Bowl in February 1959.
•The National Climatic Data Center says California's heaviest four-day snowstorm was 145 inches at the Sierra-at-Tahoe Ski Resort near Echo Summit in March-April 1982.
•The U.S. four-day snow record is 163 inches at Thompson Pass, Alaska, in December 1955.
