Sledding, snow angels, and winter sports make snow an endless source of fun for both kids and adults. And Arizona has seen its fair share of snowfall .

24/7 Wall Street determined the most snowfall in state history. The website states, “To identify the places with the biggest snowfall in history in every state, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed historical snowfall data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Centers for Environmental Information database of Snowfall Extremes . The counties and county equivalents listed had the largest three-day snowfall on record in the state.”

So just how much snow has Arizona gotten?

The website states, “Surprisingly, perhaps, Arizona’s biggest three-day snowfall was even larger, at nearly 8 feet, in Coconino County, which encompasses Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon, on Jan. 22, 2010.”

The state’s record snowfall took place in Coconino County . The largest one-day snowfall was three feet and six inches, the largest two-day snowfall on record was six feet and five inches, and the largest three-day snowfall was seven feet and 11 inches. All three records took place in January of 2010.

Check out each state’s snowfall record on 24/7 Wall Street’s website .
