December 2019 Snowpack Update

The map below shows the percent of snowpack compared to the average snowpack for that day. Red is well below-average, yellow and green are below to near average, and blue/purple is well above-average. This is based on the weight of the snow on the ground, measured by automated backcountry weather stations called SNOTEL.

California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming are doing the best while Oregon, Washington, and parts of northern Idaho are well below average.

Looking for the latest update for your local mountain? The following Base Depth vs. Average graph is updated daily on OpenSnow and available to All-Access members for nearly every mountain location in the western US and Canada.
