Snowpack

Post by brightonb on Thu 14 Apr 2011, 7:24 pm

I just looked at the snowpack totals for the entire west. These numbers are ridiculous, some of the biggest in my 25 years of kayaking. Check out this site. I'm ready for a 3 month sabbatical from work! ftp://ftp.wcc.nrcs.usda.gov/data/snow/update/ws.txt bom affraid cyclops What a Face Shocked

Most I have seen is 212", it was a closing day with ~3 feet of fresh in Alta, when they closed the 3rd week of April; mid 90s? Don't recall the year. Probably the early post-mid 90s ;-)

Wow, the Logan is at 642, Ogden South fork at 643,
where is Silver Creek, near Silver Creek Junction? Edit: Guessing around Jeremy Ranch from this map;

This is one problem with obscure creeks; they go when everything else is going off..

Interesting graphs huckfin; thanks

Scary part is SL County hasn't turned on yet with snow still in the forecast. Everyday just a little closer to the heat getting turned on.

It's on... Now. Some time in July we're going to be gathered around over beers, or the like, and try to put into perspective what the hell we've just been through. There's going to be some wild stories coming out over this year.

Sort of like, "lets hit the eggs at record high flows" type banter?

The crazy thing is that all of these flows are just the beginning. Wait tell we have a hot week. I hope everyone stays safe this year!
