I saw record snow in Quebec in March.
Records set in New England for snow and skier visits too:

And we had a lot of first hand reports here indicating terrific Apr snowpack in UTAH and throughout the West.

Over the last few decades I've often chuckled over how whenever the East is snowy the West is hurting, and vice versa (usually vice versa!), but this year the entire US seemed to have a great snow/ski year except the mid-Atlantic!! But that comes with the territory and we're lucky we get as much local skiing as we do.

Even better as far as the Rockies are concerned, it has been a pretty cool spring so far:

Last year was a good snow year but spring came on fast, so the snow melted quickly. So far, that isn't the case. For outdoor enthusiasts, this means: lllloooonnnngggg ski season, and according to one of the guides at Cooper this March, a potential set-up for an epic whitewater year on the Colorado River (as well, I am sure, as other rivers such as the Salmon).
