Happy Holidays! We hope you’re going to make some holiday turns to finish out the 2017 calendar year. There’s lots of snow out there if you’re in the right places. Of course, if you’re suffering from low tide syndrome, it’s time to head to Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem – maybe Cooke City?. It’s been off the hook in the GYE and there’s more snow in the forecast.
Let’s take a look at the snow data for the western US compared to normal. Below is the Westwide SNOTEL Current Snow Water Equivalent % of Normal as of December 25, 2017. You can link to the most recent data from the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service here. It’s updated daily throughout the winter.
See how this SNOTEL data compares to past weeks and months in our past Snotel posts.
SnoTel data is one of the best ways to find out where the coverage is above average. Are you already to plan your next skiing adventure? Enjoy the snow. Be safe out there.
