A Winter Getaway To South Dakota’s Snowiest Town Is Nothing Short Of Magical
Winters in South Dakota can be extremely cold and miserable, but you must admit that they are also gorgeous, with pristinely white snow and glittery ice. However, there is one SoDak town, in particular, that will make you feel like you’re walking through a snow globe, which just so happens also to be the snowiest town in South Dakota:
Welcome to the super historical and equally snowy town of Lead!
Boasting an average snowfall of nearly 200 inches, Lead can almost always be seen with a generous dusting of snow, especially in those mid-fall through late-spring months.
To put into perspective how much snow that is, the town with the second most snowfall (North Spearfish) receives an average of 134 inches per year, followed by 133.9 inches (Deadwood).
As you can imagine, Lead is positively beautiful when covered in snow, especially along charming Main Street.
If you are a fan of outdoor sports in the winter, there is truly no better place to be than Lead, as there are ample opportunities for skiing, snowboarding, and sledding.
Need we mention that Lead even offers 350 miles of designated snowmobile trails?
A great way to stay warm in Lead is with a little shopping, as the small town houses many one-of-a-kind shops and boutiques.
Don't forget to stop into one of Lead's many local eateries for warm drinks and home-cooked food!
