Climate change has doubled snowfall in Denali NP&Pres over past century and a half, scientists find

The amount of snow falling in Alaska’s Denali National Park, home to North America’s tallest mountain, has more than doubled over the past 150 years, according to a new study.


Scientists conducting the research near 20,310-foot Denali (formerly Mt. McKinley) say that an increase in annual snowfall from roughly 8 feet before the Industrial Revolution to 18 feet today is the result of a warming climate as more precipitation falls on the high peaks of the Alaska Range.
