SALT LAKE CITY — I don't believe I'm breaking any news here when I say it has snowed a lot over the past few weeks. Multiple storms have layered the state in a fluffy white coat.

As of Tuesday afternoon, all of Utah's snowpack regions (except for a minor sliver in northwestern Utah) were well above the average — much to the approval of ski and snowboarding enthusiasts and those who track Utah's water levels.

Every area has had its fair share of snow. Percentage-wise, southwestern Utah leads the way at 171 percent above its normal snow amount.

Photos sent to KSL show just that.

Tangie Walpole sent KSL a gorgeous view of Zion National Park with a fresh layer of snow covering it.
