January 2023 Snowpack Update
JANU-BURIED. The storm train arrived across the Western United States in December and has not stopped as we flipped the calendar into 2023.
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.
