A mix of snow and sun greeted skiers across the West over the 2016 Martin Luther King holiday weekend. Some resorts tallied up 2-3 feet of fresh snow over the weekend, while skiers woke to 6-12 inches of overnight snow at others.

In Idaho, Magic Mountain reaped the biggest snowfall in the West of the three-day weekend, tallying up 36 inches. Vail, Jackson Hole, Snowbird, Alpental and Silverton saw the three-day weekend totals topping 2 feet.

Other resorts across the West picked up snow prior to the weekend, refreshing the slopes from the Christmas holiday ski crowds. The seven-day snowfall total from Jan. 12-18, 2016, put Alpental on top with 4 feet of snow. Jackson Hole, Northstar, Summit at Snoqualmie, Grand Targhee, Snowbird, Boreal and Magic Mountain piled up 3 feet or more of snow for the week.

Resorts continued to open terrain and add features to parks, including Sun Valley Resort, which opened their superpipe on Dollar Mountain.
