I seem to remember 70-71 being proclaimed "The Winter of the Century" by a local radio station in Montreal. We have a certificate in my mom's basement proclaiming that our family "survived the winter of the century". I remember LOTS of snow, and having to use cross-country skis, snowshoes, or a snowmobile to get to the store for supplies.
Haven't seen snow that bad since!
