Thanks to a series of snowstorms, Brundage Mountain has received over 45 inches of new snow in the last week.

MCCALL, Idaho — Brundage Mountain is calling it the storm of the decade, and rightfully so. Officials there say they've set a new record for February snowfall.

The mountain has received about four feet of snow in just the last week, and the grand total for the month of February is about 11 feet. That's more than three times the monthly average for Brundage.

A mountain spokesperson said it's still too early to tell if they'll break their season snowfall record of 428 inches set in 2007-2008. So far this year, they've received 278 inches.

"But one thing is certain," spokesperson April Whitney said in a statement. "People who love powder are as stoked as we've ever seen them, and that's more important to us than any statistic."
