Editor’s Note: We updated this article for 2021. This is our first time ranking the snowiest cities in Utah.

Sure, a Saturday morning right after a foot of fluffy snow is the best thing ever. But that same amount of snow on Tuesday in Utah can make a commute last forever. So just imagine it's the dead of winter, and the time of year when the ground is frozen, the air is bone chilling, and there are piles of dirty, nasty ice encrusted snow all over the place.

This is about the time of year when you're just about ready for spring -- especially in Summit Park, the snowiest place in Utah.

So, put on your parkas, snow boots and your gloves and let's go outside to see which Utah cities get dumped on the most every year. After analyzing all the cities in Utah with a decent amount of people in them, we came up with this list as the 10 snowiest cities in Beehive State.

What's the snowiest place in Utah with more than 5,000 people? That would be Summit Park with an average annual snowfall of 343.2 inches.

Read on below to see where your town ranked, you snow angels.
