Snowpack Surpasses 100%
UPDATE: Spring started off with a heavy snow this week that later turned into rain, which is typical spring weather around here. With that in mind, our snowpack level has finally surpassed the last 40-year average. It looks like river levels should be great for some Fly Fishing and Rafting this Spring! Don’t miss out on the fun.
Here is a graph of the past snowpack data. Pretty interesting! Click on the photo for the link to get more info from USGS on SNOTEL.
