The winter months are very unpredictable in Salt Lake City, no one year is the same as another, due to the many variables related to winter conditions in Salt Lake City such as the lake effect, four mountain ranges, and elevation differences from the valley floor to the high benches, etc. The only way to understand the reasons for snow and ice removal processes is to compare data gathered over the years to give us an insight into why one year may have been a greater challenge than the last.
