December 2022 Snowpack Update
It’s been an early December to remember for the Western United States. The skiing has been deep and the snowpack is getting even deeper.
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.
