SNOTEL Data: The Current Western US Snowpack – March 15, 2017


How’s the snow? It’s time for a mid-month check in on the snowpack. The last few weeks have seen unseasonably warm weather in some spots, but the Snotel data indicates that most regions of the western US are still sitting on a nice fat snowpack. It’s spring skiing out down low and it’s still winter up high. Where are you planning to ski this month?

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 March 15, 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.
