I think that the snowfall season at DEN usually ends in May but I would count anything in June, technically snowfall seasons run from July 1st to June 30th so the contest ends June 30th. There is a recent update and report on scoring in the March thread (updated yesterday). As all contest entrants have at least 7" DEN snow unused, no changes in scoring rank can occur unless we see more than that, and actually it would take about 20" more to make any significant changes. I assume all other stations are done for the season, BOS and ORD have had measurable snowfalls in May.
