March 2019 Snowpack Update
The 2018-19 season has been a winter to remember as storm-after-storm has delivered DEEP powder days to nearly every region in the Western US. California? Check. Utah? Check. Wyoming? Check. New Mexico? Check. Colorado. Check!
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.
