November 2019 Snowpack Update

The 2019-2020 season started off with a bang for much of the Northern Rockies in October. The focus shifted further north and east to start November but we're closely watching the return of stronger storms during the final days of November and into early December.

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.
