One of the snowiest cities in the United States is right here in Michigan. It also happens to be the oldest city in the state as well.

When we think of cities that get pounded with snow year after year, we tend to think of Houghton, Traverse City, and Marquette. While they are among the snowiest in the state, they aren't the overall snowiest. At least not at the moment.

What is the Snowiest City in Michigan in 2022?

When looking at average snowfall across the state of Michigan, you'll find Sault Ste. Marie at the top of the list. The Soo is also the second snowiest city in the United States, according to World Population Review.

Sault Ste. Marie normally gets an average annual snowfall of 117 inches. However, this number conflicts with one website that claims it's 109 inches, while another says it gets 83.5 inches. 83 inches seems awfully low to me.

No matter how you look at it, the Soo gets a lot of snow every year. There's no arguing that.

What is the Most Snowfall that Sault Ste. Marie Has Ever Received?

The most snow that Sault Ste. Marie has ever received was a whopping 209.1 inches in 1995.
