We've had a very unusually warm winter. We've only had two snow storms so far and the most we got was maybe 2 inches. This week it's going to be in the 50s. Most days it doesn't even get below freezing.
It's been really warm up here this winter as well. Other than maybe 4-5 days total where it was down to -31 Fahrenheit. But our biggest snowfall here has only been probably 20 inches and that was 1 time. Everything else has been under 10.

Actually Ottawa averages about 93 inches of snowfall per winter so no it is not imperial inches
We get exacly half of that here in C Springs over the past 30-year average (semi arid-high desert).
Most ski areas here and that of northern Michigan count on 300 - 360". Wolfcreek here in CO gets more than 400 though with the avg being 465.
The climate of local areas are profoundly affected by differences in elevation, and to a lesser degree, by the orientation of mountain ranges and valleys with respect to general air movements. Wide variations occur within short distances. The difference (35°) in annual mean temperature between Pikes Peak and Las Animas, 90 miles to the southeast, is about the same as that between southern Florida and Iceland. The average annual snowfall at Cubres in the southern mountains is nearly 300 inches; less than 30 miles away at Manassa in the San Luis Valley, snowfall is less than 25 inches. While temperature decreases, and precipitation generally increases with altitude, these patterns are modified by the orientation of mountain slopes with respect to the prevailing winds and by the effect of topographical features in creating local air movements.
