Regional snow % of average/Where to work?

Does anyone know how i can easily lookup and compare regional snowpack % of average?

The reason im looking is to kinda follow the snow and land a guide/kayak support job in a drainage that will have a good year.

Or, if you could potentially land a job at any outfitter, what river and outfitter and why? Consider: how close to extracurricular boating? This is a Stateside search for the 2012 season. If i could afford to go international at this point i would. but i cant, so i wont.

I have an offer in Idaho on the Salmon ( Stanley/Sunbeam dailies)
and i have entertained offers and companies on the Forks of the American in Cali. Also, i tried getting in on Cherry Creek on the T, but thats a close-knit crew. I would like to see the Tuolumne, but i want to get some others input.

I appreciate the support buzzards.
Im a lifer boater, and im looking for some new rivers. Living the Dream.

Snotel is pretty good, just google it with the state and you'll figure it out.

Here's a forecast for the next week on top of the Poudre drainage. We'll be caught up and past average by March!
