Snow Accumulations Increase

December 12, 2012 Greater Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming No Comments
Snowpack

Repeated waves of snow showers have been very beneficial to northwestern Wyoming which, until last week, was relatively snow-parched.  According to the Natural Resource Conservation Service, snotel sites in area basins posted appreciably above average amounts.  The precipitation average in the Snake River Basin is currently at 114% of normal snow accumulation with a water equivalency of 124%.  The Yellowstone basin which includes Two Ocean Plateau is at 112% of normal precip with 114% of water content.  Statewide, however, the median accumulation is still below last year’s level at this time. Still, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort reports having received 138 inches of snow at the summit so far this season while Grand Targhee boasts 137 inches at its summit.

  • Bigger trucks aren’t always better - August 19, 2014
    I recently had the rare opportunity to test a compact and a full-size pickup pretty much head-to-head. Going into it, I was pretty sure there was nothing the compact version could offer that I would like more than the full-size truck. But the Nissan Frontier, despite its size, is no less truck than the Nissan […]
