The lowest year was the winter of 1941/42, when only 102 cm fell. The records stretch back to 1906.

The city measures snow levels at its public works department, which is near the Revelstoke Secondary School.

By comparison, the snowest year by far was the winter of 1971/72, when 779 cm fell. The second was 1955/56 at 635 cm and the third was 1981/82 at 631 cm.
