It’s Impossible To Forget The Year West Virginia Saw Its Single Largest Snowfall Ever

West Virginians are used to snow… some would say we’re ‘too’ used to it. According to this website, the largest snowfall amount in a 24-hour period in West Virginia was in 1998 during a January snowstorm that dumped an outrageous 35 inches of fresh snow in 24 hours in Flat Top. Aside from the skiers who may have been in the neighboring community of Ghent, the snow wreaked havoc for days. But it was another snowfall in the Mountain State that had a much longer-lasting effect upon daily lives.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

January 1978 is still the snowiest January on record in West Virginia. Do you remember this storm and the massive amount of snow that fell?
