Northern Rockies Snowpack observations

Feel free to include any observations you feel are relevant. I just looked through some snotel data for the Bozeman Area:

Lone Mountain (West Fork Gallatin) 80%
Upper Hyalite 90%
Lower Hyalite (low elevation) 98%
Carrot Basin (Upper Gallatin) 73%
Monument Peak 78%
West Crazies 87%
South West Crazies 81%
Albra Lake (S. Willow) 82%
Lower Twin Lake (low elevation) 90%

Yeah, hard to expect a huge year but I think we will be fine.

The Bob is at around 100% too. Missoula will have a fine season. Looking forward to some NF Blackfoot action again. Glenn, you gotta make it up this way in the spring this year. Upper rattlesnake mission?

All right, now that we've got the Bozeman contingent here, who wants to run Beartrap Saturday? 3 of us are heading over from Missoula, and you can probably imagine we don't want to drive 2 rigs just for the shuttle. I'm waiting on responses from fairer weather friends than us, and it would be nice to dial in the shuttle situation now. Plus, more and new winter boating friends! Let me know

I'll be up in whitefish on the snow. Do you have confirmation Beartrap is ice free?

No, we just go run it, have never seen or heard of problems with ice. I'm not sure why, and I've run it when it is super cold. I've not done it a ton in the winter, but some friends from Livingston do it a couple of times a year. They were there 2 weeks or so ago also and it was good to go.

I'd go but I'm on a three week straight stint of two jobs and wrestling them around so I can get up to Oregon for a week. Good luck finding some peps my neighbor Jason might be into it...
