Ski resorts in Wyoming are reporting a "record" 100 inches of snow on the upper mountain.

Two resorts report over 100 inches of snow so far this year: Grand Targhee, which reports 119 inches, and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, which reports 118 inches. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort will open on Friday, November 24. Grand Targhee already has opened.

A spokeswoman for Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Anna Cole, told Jackson Hole News&Guide that this is the second-largest amount of ski-able terrain the resort has had on opening weekend in her 10 years there.

"The tools were all in place to open up," she added. "It’s the conditions that allowed it to happen."

CBS Denver reports that storms are common in the Pacific Northwest this time of year due to the climate phenomenon known as La Niña.

"I did comparisons looking at other resorts, and no one has snow like us," Bill Lewkowitz, resort business development director, told the news site. "For the most part in the U.S., we've been very, very lucky."
