Motorists travel down Main Street in Ketchum on Monday. With Ketchum under a winter storm warning until Wednesday night, Sun Valley’s monthly snow total may reach an all-time high.

    After 26 days and more than 120 inches of snow, Sun Valley is officially “Februburied.”

    At 6 a.m. Tuesday, the Sun Valley Ski Patrol announced that the 10 feet of snowfall this month marks the highest February total since the resort began measuring during the 1967-68 season, surpassing the 119.5 inches that fell during February 2017.

    With two days to go and more snow on the way, it has a shot at breaking the 129.5-inch all-time monthly record from January 1969, according to Sun Valley spokeswoman Kelli Lusk.  

    The resort reported that 5 inches fell on Baldy overnight Monday, bringing totals to 110 inches at the base and 133 inches at the top.  

    That will likely rise in the coming days. Northern Blaine County is under a winter storm warning until 5 p.m. Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service, with snow in the forecast through Thursday.
