Lots of sources, most use USGS or NOAA, use the search for more info but for some good links look here:

I look at snotel which seems pretty representative of what i've seen snowboarding this year. Definitely no where near 80 %. Try 50 % statewide and a little above 50 % on the front range.

Here is a link to easy to read graphs from the NRCS showing basin-wide summaries of Snotel information:

SNOTEL Basin Time Series Snowpack Summary Graphs | Colorado NRCS

and here is the latest graph from that link for the Ark Basin:

definitely not 80%...

As of april 1st the state is at 52 percent. And little to no hope of getting any better.

I stumbled across the chart today and it is very telling. A lot of record or near low SNOTEL measurements.

The basin outlook report should be posted today or friday. Go to and pick your state.

Just buy a new mountain bike and you'll feel better. Worked for me.
