How late might the Salt run?

Obviously lots of variables, but anyone have a good feel for how long the season will last down there?

Based on the snowpack analysis alone, I would guess that it will last most of the way through April. There's still 130% snowpack for the basin and so far it's been dropping about 7-8% per week, but I'm sure it'll start going faster.

Just my guess

2005 graph- probably a good estimate:
