People in Whitehorse have had to wade through even more snow than usual in past months: it was ONE OF THE SNOWIEST WINTERS SINCE RECORDS BEGAN in 1940s. From November to March, the city had 149.7 centimetres of snowfall. In comparison, the record was set in 1991-92, when the city had 177.7 centimetres of snow.
