State snowpack percent of average sites?

Why cant we be more like surfers and make it easy to find out which basin has good snow pack? Im looking for something similiar to what we have on pwderbuzz that shows basin wide percent of averages for Washington state, Oregon and idaho, even BC if any knows..... I thought this information would be easier to obtain, maybe im trying to hard.....
Thanks,
W

Willie, I use the link above. Click on a state and among the boat load of possible links look for snow and precipitation, and then look for current year snow water data by basin. You might have to hunt for a while, but you can find them for all the western states.

It gives graphs like this:
