15 inches on Banner today. And 7.5 on the SWE. Last year we opened it with 13" of SWE. Gotta be openable by now. Get your shovels on.
The pass you need to clear is 250 feet higher than Banner so not a major difference. When we shoveled it out there was close to 24 inches of slush up there. And we had to do about 400 yards - some not that deep.
But of course it is snowing in Ketchum right now, so can only imagine what it is like up there on the pass.
Marsh Creek at 6.85 on the MF gauge is much better than Marsh Creek at 3.5 feet. Dagger is a blast at 6.5 and the lower canyon is boating much, much bigger than the 7 feet that is showing. Too lazy to look up the bottom flow but it is cranking and almost all washed out. Of course now it is dropping, so looks like we hit it perfect.
Have fun out there kids. And stay the hell offa my lawn.
