Western Snowpack 2018

Not looking good for Oregon/southern Rockies although there's lots of time to boost those numbers. Compare to last year

The last Winter I ever saw this dry was apprx. 1980.

Wyoming and Montana are OK but dang the rest sucks.
That sounds awesome in my ears!! (P-A)

we were basking in goodness here with our everyday drivel that we enjoy.... the rest of this is horseshit, flybug.pa.

Praying for you folks. My homies in western Colorado are bumming big time. So much so, the mountain is refunding locals who purchased full passes. Pray to the gnar gods for dumpage

We're pushing normal up here in Paradise, but it's the March snows (at elevation) that will tell the tale.

Southeast Alaska’s streams are going to be fucked this summer if we dont get some snowpack to keep flows stable until late summer. Near Ketchikan, we broke the all time record high for the state and reached 67 degrees.... In January... In friggin alaska.

Wasn’t last year even better? Or was that just bighorn country? Beartooth is kicking ass and takin names. If only the snow pack would solidify. 3 avy deaths already. All around west but Cooke ain’t much better. Last dude was ski biking just off a trail at the bottom of the canyon. WTF!?!
