Visitors to the third floor of the Cousins Building get a great view of the snow-covered soccer fields, where students take advantage of a wide path shoveled from the Enmax Centre to campus. There were just 24 days of snow last winter, when this photo was taken, making it the 10th driest winter in Lethbridge’s history since recording started in 1907.

The snowiest winter in Lethbridge’s history occurred in 2005-06, when the city had measurable snow 76 days. Other especially snowy winters occurred in 1946-47, 1964-65, 1970-71 and 1971-72. The Old Farmer’s Almanac predicts that precipitation and snowfall will be below normal this winter, with the snowiest periods in mid- to late November and mid-March.
