TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — The Mt Lemmon Hotel manager says the area has received 55 inches of snow, compared to the 66 inches of snow at Ski Valley.

Locals have been enjoying snow days on Mt Lemmon and while the current amount of snow isn't record breaking, it's getting close.

"This year we've been learnings some tough lessons with all the snow, where to put it, but also with how much snow, ice and sleet we've had at once, entire sections of snow sheets have been sliding off of the roofs," writes hotel management.

Another two feet of snow is expected to fall in the following week, but employees have been clearing the area for guests and visitors to have safe travels.

Marcos Icahuate joined the KGUN team in September 2022. He previously worked on digital content in Southern California's Imperial County where he was raised.
