With March having come to a close, the 2014 Fantasy Snowfall contest has ended. We’ve waited about a week to make sure the stats are accurate: that any corrections that were needed between December and March have been accounted for now. First, here’s a look at the March monthly totals:
|GSG Fantasy Snowfall 2014|
|Starters (Full Credit)|
|Denver||6.0||Ann Arbor||10.5||Green Bay||6.1||Akron||9.7|
|Milwaukee||6.3||Madison||8.2||Salt Lake City||0.5||Hartford||0.8|
|Bench (Half Credit)|
All four competitors used Syracuse earlier in the season. That strategy worked this season, as Syracuse picked up 21.7 inches of snow in March, the city’s lowest total of the 4 months in play.
Mike takes March, but monthly totals for everyone were a bit low for everyone. While this is partly due to the big cities being on the bench, it’s largely a result of there just simply not being much snow in most of the Fantasy Snowfall cities. Only 2 cities reached the 20 inch mark, while 16 of the 24 failed to reach double digits.
Now a word about the final standings. Because of adjustments made through the season by the National Weather Service, the totals below will not match results from previously announced months. With that out of the way, here are the final totals for Fantasy Snowfall 2014:

Steve wins this year’s contest! It was a tight race for the rest, as the difference between second and last was 4.4 inches. Mike winning March propelled him to second place overall, with Pat finishing 3rd and Brent in 4th.
We’d like to thank all four players for their participation, and everyone for following along, this season. We’re excited to bring another edition of Fantasy Snowfall next season…but we’ll gladly take the next 6 months to relax before then.
While Fantasy Snowfall has ended, the main snow race continues! Stay tuned to find out which city is this year’s national champion. Can Erie hold on? Will Syracuse overtake them? Is there another that will pass them both? Should be a very interesting conclusion in the next month to month and a half!
