Snowfall Reports


Four feet of snow, yes, I said four feet of snow dropped in the northern Black Hills during the week-long storm event. Snowfall reports from the National Weather Service showed Cheyenne Crossing and Deadwood receiving four feet or 48 inches of snow.



Other places along the foothills saw snow exceeding 30 inches, with Spearfish obtaining 36 inches, and in Sturgis, 35 inches fell in the city. Outside the Black Hills area, significant snow of 30 inches fell within the city of Pine Ridge, 28 inches at Kadoka and Eagle Butte, and 24 inches in Batesland and Kyle.
