February 2020 Snowpack Update

Resorts in the Pacific Northwest and the Northern Rockies continued to be the main beneficiaries for storms during the second half of January and into early February. Utah and Colorado also continue to receive healthy totals thanks to a consistent storm track, while California will likely have to wait until late February or early March to get back in on the action.

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.
