anyone know what the snow pack is?

I am not sure where or if it's on buzz anymore. But I can't say I researched it too hard.

Would be great to know about CO, WY, ID and NM.

Anyone got any idea?

Idaho - the guy from NRCS posts on the idaho yahoo site when the new report is out. It looks like you can subscribe to receive it also.

CKS says the ARV is at 107%. The skiing has been damn good if that is an indication, and it is.

Hi All,
This is a really good question. Everyone is starting to share the data, but you know, it's still too early to make any real guesses about the run-off season.

If you're tracking the Blue or the Colorado: our December numbers showed that we had above average precipitation and inflow to our mountain reservoirs like Green Mountain and Granby. But, our snowpack numbers show everything still below average, except for the Upper Arkansas Basin which is currently above average (as someone already mentioned).

As for me, I'm curious what will happen in March and April. We could sure use more snow on the east side...
