Thompson is ranked second in Canada for the most days with deep snow cover, with 154 days of snow covering the ground to a depth of at least 4 inches (10 centimetres).

And we average 180 days of snow with a depth of at least 0.4 inches (1 cm). Our snow also comes early. Among Canadian cities, we are ranked number three for the greatest total snowfall in September, October and November.By the end of the season, we’ve averaged 73.3 inches of the white stuff. Relatively low humidity during the winter months tends to make the snow dry with a fine grain consistency that is well-suited to snow ingestion testing.
