Dear 100 Hour Board,
How much snow do we typically receive here in Provo? If it is less that 20 feet anually, why can't we get more?

A: Dear Poor, Poor Sap,
The average yearly snowfall for Provo is 10-20 inches. Since anyone who cares this much about snow would probably head up north to ski and snowboard, the average for Salt Lake City is about 60 inches. (These numbers vary from source to source. One source had Provo snow at 60 inches and another had Salt Lake at 90 inches!)
