Weather Talk: Black Hills, SD, snowfall not comparable to Fargo’sParts of the Black Hills have received 6 feet of snow already this October from two separate snowstorms. Six feet is 72 inches. Fargo-Moorhead’s snowiest known winter in 1996-97 yielded 117 inches, which is almost 10 feet. The hills around Deadwood already have two-thirds of that, and there is still November, all of winter, and then early spring for more snow to fall.
